The front side of "Minnesota Bike Map East" contains the map of the southeastern quadrant of the state, from Elmore to Royalton, a legend, a small map of native vegetation in the state, and an article about bicycling safety and security. The back side contains the map of the northeastern quadrant of the state, from Royalton to Baudette, and a legend. 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 Each map is unique and signifies a historical reference to the state of bicycle facilities at the time of publication.
