- The front side of "Explore Minnesota Bikeways: Northeast" contains: inset maps of Duluth, Cloquet, Hibbing, Virginia, International Falls, and Brainerd; illustrations of the Gunflint Trail Tour Route, Iron Range Tour Route, and Duluth to Two Harbors Tour; a checklist of touring supplies with a diagram of where to put supplies on a bike; and bicycling safety tips. The back side contains the larger bikeways map, legend, and a list of Minnesota bicycle laws. 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 Each map is unique and signifies a historical reference to the state of bicycle facilities at the time of publication.
