Once again, I stopped at Shipshewana, Indiana. I was there June 1 – 7.
While there, I walked a bit but mostly biked. About a mile from my Campground is the Pumpkinvine Trail, another rails to trails path. The first few days, I drove a mile to bike about 20 miles. Then I got smart and rode the mile to the trail. The road is a busy one, but there is a wide shoulder where the Amish and Mennonite walk and bike along with the horse and buggies.
The trail went past many farms and a couple of RV manufacturers.
A bad thing about this trail --
There is a Dairy Queen in Middlebury just beside the trail. I thought that would be great on a warm day, a place to get some ice cream. But I did not stop, of course I typically ride early in the morning so I did not have any ice cream cravings!
On Tuesday, I went to the flea market in Shipshewana. It is huge! Since I am not a shopper, my pedometer showed that I walked 30 minutes without stopping.
From here, I headed into Michigan with my first stop being in Manistee, MI to be a base for touring the west side of Michigan.
