Normally, I like people from the midwest...eg my team mate, some of my best friends. But this guy from Minny-appless is trash talking. I'm just sayin'...

"Portland is just street in Minneapolis"
—Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak when comparing Portland to Minneapolis as a bike friendly city.
Rybak, a champion for cycling, happened to stop in Freewheel Bike Shop while the BRAIN dealer tour was passing through.
Rybak was an advocate of bringing in the Freewheel Bike Shop, coffee shop and commuter station as part of a massive revitalization project that transformed an old railroad corridor into the Midtown Greenway, 5.5-mile bike and pedestrian path in South Minneapolis.
Rybak spoke to the group briefly before he grabbed his Specialized Allez from Freewheel's bike locker and headed out on his commute.
