I’m not a very good biker. I’m also not a very prepared blogger. Saturday I woke up early to bike to my local farmers market knowing perfectly well that the parkway was gorgeous this time of year, but I neglected to bring my camera. So humor me and my iPhone snaps.
For me, there’s no beating the Menomonee River Parkway for a lazy Saturday bike ride: it takes me exactly where I want to go and it looks great doing it. You’ve got almost five miles of pristine bike paths, the beautiful scenery of Hart Park, and the river weaving through the whole thing. And to make it better, you’ve got awesome architectural details like this drawbridge (not an actual drawbridge) that lead to the Hoyt Park beer garden.
And for good measure, here’s one of my trusty Townie bike. I’ve never been big into biking (or any exercise for that matter), but this baby makes taking a ride oh so easy, meaning: it’s beautiful and, most importantly, it’s comfortable. Let me tell you that totally sold me.
