- The front side of "Minnesota Bikeways: Map 5 and Map 10 - North Central Minnesota" contains: a legend of signs and symbols; the larger bikeway map for Map 10, including Tower-Soudan; and a map index. The back side contains: a list of county, municipal, and state parks, national and state forests, and state rest areas covered in Maps 5 and 10; inset maps of Tower, Cook, and Orr; the larger bikeways map for Map 5, including Kabetogama and Rainy Lake Area; safety tips for bicycling; and a "potpourri" article. 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 Each map is unique and signifies a historical reference to the state of bicycle facilities at the time of publication.
