What makes your idea different or unexpected? (4000 characters maximum or approx. 500 words)

Biking is very popular from young to old. There are a lot of areas in St. Paul for trails that are extremely beautiful. The best part is to be out in nature by day and in the city by night. You get the best of both worlds. It is a completely feasible, responsible and progressive idea that can only be done in St. Paul. Furthermore, it will draw large bike events to the city further producing revenue and recognition to the city.
