My first full day in Minneapolis was also the day of Sara’s defense. I decided to use the Nice Ride bikes to get myself to campus.
On the same street where I was saying was this gorgeous apartment building.
My neighborhood had a lot of churches in it, including two across the street from one another.
About four blocks from my house were the bikes.
I checked one out and was on my way. Look at the great bike infrastructure they have! I rode bike lanes the entire way to campus.
This bridge took me over the freeway.
Here I have a great view of the Mighty Mississippi.
I got to campus quite easily using the Google Maps directions. From that point, I had a bit of trouble finding a docking station. The campus is large. I ended up docking at the Student Union because I knew where that was and vaguly in which direction it was located and then power-walked over to the defense.
Thank goodness I’d visited campus on previous trips.
