Light at the End of the Chunnel

OK, so it’s only 775 feet long (vs. 31.4 miles), and runs under Target Field (not the English Channel), but did you know that Minneapolis has a Chunnel, too?

Designed for bike riders rather than trains, the Twin Cities’ version connects the Cedar Lake Trail Extension (almost) to the Mississippi.

(And yes, the picture above is of the European version, not the Minneapolis one).

P.S.:  Just for the sake of originality, how about calling it the “Brunnel?”  (for “Bike Trail Tunnel”).

Or “Tyke?”  (“Tunnel for Bikes”)
