I left Milwaukee at 8:05 under a sunny sky, and got on the Oak Leaf Trail, followed by the Ozaukee Interurban Trail, which is an old rail line. Smooth pavement, through quiet woods, fields, and small towns. It made for pleasant riding on about 45 miles of trail, with another 17 miles of quiet back roads.
Talked to a couple of local cyclists along the way, and one of them rode with me a while and showed me a shortcut over the Interstate. People are friendly and easy to approach. That’s how I met the fishermen while eating lunch at Port Washington.
Spent a quiet night in secluded bike campsite at Kohler-Andrae State Park.
