- The front side of "Minnesota Bikeways: Map 1 - North Western Minnesota" contains: a map index a list of county, municipal, and state parks covered in the map area; a "potpourri" article about the history, parks, and vegetation of the Red River Valley; and inset maps of Lancaster, MN, Hallock, MN, Drayton, ND, Stephen, MN, and Grafton, ND. The back side contains a legend of signs and symbols and the large bikeways map. 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 Each map is unique and signifies a historical reference to the state of bicycle facilities at the time of publication.
