The Best Bicycle Ride in Vadnais Heights

As you’ve likely guessed, I’m not a huge fan of bicycling in Vadnais Heights, at least compared to places like Shoreview that have relatively good and safe paths to ride on and much safer intersections.

Having done so once, I will not cross 35E to get to Perkins or anything else on that side, it is simply too dangerous in my opinion.

Early on Saturday and Sunday mornings before there is much or any traffic on the roads is my favorite. I enjoy riding to Dunn Bros for a cappuccino or sometimes my wife and I will ride to Panera for breakfast. What’s great about our Dutch city bikes is that they’re easy to just hop on a go when we decide to do this.

It’s not The Netherlands or Copenhagen, or even Shoreview, but it does make for a great way to start the day.

  • I just ordered a Workcycles Opa. Should be getting it soon! Glad to see a fellow Twin Citian riding a Workcycles bike.

      You’ll enjoy it. There are a few in town as well as a number of Workcycles Bakfiets. I’ve seen a ‘Henry Workcycles’ bakfiets in Roseville a couple of times which is an older one. A friend recently ordered one of the new versions so he can take his dog to work. Fun stuff.
