The City Cyclist

  • Which trail will you take?

    As fall grows near, it brings with it great biking weather. This week, take a break from the Oak Leaf to enjoy a few scenic trails outside of Milwaukee.

  • The North Shore Spur

    For this week's segment of the Oak Leaf Trail we head south to the North Shore Spur, which follows a picturesque section of the old North Shore Line interurban.

  • A Bicycle Vacation

    Mark takes a "vacation" to Iowa to participate in the RAGBRAI - a seven-day, 481 mile journey through America's heartland, and lives to tell the tale.

  • Ozaukee Interurban

    This week, Mark rides along a former rail line-turned-recreational trail, exploring a 30 mile route through Ozaukee County and several other communities.

  • The Bugline

    Mark explores "The Bugline," a rail line turned recreational trail that takes a scenic path from Menomonee Falls to Merton. And it's not as 'buggy' as you think...

  • The East-West Connector

    Today, Mark explores a portion of the Oak Leaf Trail that connects the lakefront to Wauwatosa, West Allis and West Milwaukee. Let's ride!

  • The Hank Aaron State Trail

    Take in a view of Milwaukee's industrial past and tour the picturesque Menomonee Valley on the winding paths of the Hank Aaron State Trail extension.

  • Follow the River

    Another great weekend for biking in Milwaukee! This week, enjoy the wild and woodsy beauty along the northwestern portion of the Oak Leaf Trail.

  • Enjoy the falls on the Oak Leaf Trail

    Riding north from Veteran's Park you can enjoy the lake, river views and finish with a relaxing stop by the Kletzsch Park Falls.

  • Cooler by the lake

    This weekend, follow the southeast segment of the Oak Leaf Trail and enjoy lake views and the natural (and possibly haunted!) wonders of the Seven Bridges Trail.
