The Monon Trail and Greenway
Man, we do love the Monon, especially now that breweries seem to be popping up on the trail EVERY QUARTER MILE. It’s leafy, it’s fun, it’s flat, it’s just very pretty — and the thing keeps stretching ever northward into Westfield. It’s not just a recreational route, either — the thing has become a primary north/south trunk route for cycling commuters. And the greenway connects with many other trails in Indy and beyond. NOTE: When the weekend weather turns warm, there are walkers, inline skaters, mellow skateboarders and lots of families with little kids and dogs — this is NOT the place to be setting land speed records on your carbon-fiber racing bike. Don’t be a dick.
