- The front side of "Minnesota Bikeways: Map 16 - North Central Minnesota" contains a legend of signs and symbols, the larger bikeways map, and the map index. The back side contains: a list of county, municipal, township, and state parks, national and state forests, state recreation areas, and trail accesses covered in the map; a "potpourri" article; a checklist of touring supplies with a diagram of where to put supplies on a bike; and inset maps of Hibbing, Chisholm, Biwabik, Eveleth, Mountain Iron, and Virginia. MnDOT's bikeway maps serve as a reference guide illustrating major historical and cultural points of interest in Minnesota, public park lands and facilities, equipment, and safety information. They also depict road analyses for bicycle travel, location of paved road shoulders and off-road bikeways, and controlled access roads where bicycles are prohibited. There are 54 maps in the Statewide Series (1979-1983), 4 maps in the Statewide Quadrant Series (1986-1993), and 2 maps in the Metro Series (1989). Legislatively mandated, these maps were prepared as convenient guides to help bicyclists select their routes. Each map is unique and signifies a historical reference to the state of bicycle facilities at the time of publication.
