35W bike trail across the Minnesota River is open!

Rob and I rode it today! Suggest you start at the Old Cedar Bridge parking lot. Go across two bridges. Take the trail west along the south side of the Minnesota River to 35W. Cross on 35W. Go up the hill on Lyndale S. Take 102nd east to 96th. You will need to ride the road or sidewalk to Cedar Av. Take Cedar south back to parking lot.

Hi Nancy, 

Not sure I follow, could maybe share a GPS track or a map maybe?

Sounds awesome!

Mike

@mrbikey Here is a RWGPS link for a 19 mile route that goes over the new I35W bike bridge. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/34602062

It also goes on the beautiful new Minnesota River Bottoms paved trail which is an out and back option for 3.5 miles. The return through Bloomington is more complex than Nancy's route, but it is very fun to ride through these Bloomington Bluff neighborhoods.

Here is a MTB option of 13.4 miles that runs along the MN River.  I rode this today, the 35W crossing is amazing; I had no idea they were including a bike path alongside the freeway.

@unclefester98 Hi Johnny, I noticed on your GPS track, at one section just north of the Lyndale parking lot, that it appears you went out and back, turning around about 7.5 miles on the route.  Does the tar presently end there maybe?  Thanks, Mike

@mrbikey Yes, the paved trail just ends and it's only about 1 3/4 miles long. But it's still worth doing the out and back ride. Here is a photo at the end of the trail.
