Ozaukee Interurban Bicycle Trail ride from Mequon
September 3, 2016
9:30 am

we'll ride the Ozaukee Interurban Bicycle Trail ride from Mequon to Port Washington, Wisconsin. 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.
