September 19, 2015
Join me on Saturday, September 19 for a bike ride from Mequon to Port
Washington, Wisconsin on the Ozaukee Interurban Bicycle Trail. We will be
stopping at the Dockside Grill on the scenic shoreline of Lake Michigan in
Port Washington for lunch. (Or bring a lunch.) The ride is about 16 miles
one-way (32 miles round trip). We'll ride at a 10-12 mph (casual speed)
with no one left behind.
This is an easy to cycle, scenic, well-marked, paved trail/route over an old
trolley line. The route is not totally flat. There are a few small hills.
(On the return we have to ride up from Lake Michigan for a bit.) The trail
passes through the towns of Cedarburg and Grafton where there are some
on-road segments. We will be cycling through farmland on tree-lined trails,
crossing rivers on historic bridges, cycling over the expressway and ending
up in the Port Washington Marina on the shore of Lake Michigan. We'll see
the new Coal Dock Park and Beach on the south side of town, as well as the beach on the north side of town. (A dip into the lake to cool off is allowed.) This is a favorite ride of many club members
