As featured in this streetfilms video, Minneapolis, Minnesota is not only famous for being the hometown of Prince (aka T.A.F.K.A.P.), but it deserves a love symbol for its bike friendly initiatives and its citizens that brave the weather - purple rain, hail or shine.

The brainchild of Giancarlo Brocci, the inaugural L'Eroica "race" set off in 1997 from Gaiole in Chianti, Italy, as an initiative to protect the remaining stradi bianchi, or, white gravel roads of Tuscany. Nowadays 2,400 riders partake in the scenic tour. Not really a race but a kind of cycling ode to the slow movement which, of course, began in Italy too. So, taking in the scenery and stopping for regular ribollita soup, cake and wine are just as important as finishing. No carbon fibre nor bikes pre 1987 in sight, the event is preceded by a weekend exhibition and market of vintage bikes, cycling gear and well worn tweed.

Bikes sure have hit the mainstream. Urban Outfitters, a site I usually go to for some T-shirt inspiration, has started selling custom bikes via partner Republic Bikes.
