Bicycling Along the Riverfront Trail

My share for this week’s Wet and Wild September for Tuesday Travels meme is something that isn’t wet nor wild, but fun and just watery.

 

I am sharing a few photos of us from our bicycling routine this afternoon, er, yesterday afternoon (it’s 1:20am currently and I feel like it’s still not a new day!). We trekked several miles from our home to the Riverfront following the Green Circle Trail paralleling the Great Wisconsin River in our place. To estimate the distance that we’ve pedaled, I think it was close to 10 miles, as we were gone for 2 hours including the pitstops that we did.

 

Here is me, stuck in the pedestrian pathway because the very long train passed by.

I may have not worn my biking shoes, but that Nike sandals was definitely comfy for me! And the helmet– oh yeah, the daughter and the husband won’t let me go bicycling without it for safety purposes. So even if it doesn’t feel comfortable for my head, I had to have it on. :) It was cool yesterday, but way warmer from our previous temperatures in the 40s and 50s. When we went biking, it was in the 60s, still cooler since the wind would meet us as we pedaled, but it was so good of an exercise that the strength and effort extended made me sweat so not being on pants and sweatshirt was just okay.

The Great Wisconsin River where the trail we trekked paralleled this body of water. That building which seems to be in the midst of the river is a paper plant, a famous manpower company here in Stevens Point. The water looks stagnant because it’s controlled by a Dam.

And there’s the husband and the daughter, having so much fun feeding the ducks by the Riverfront. I intentionally brought our leftover loaves of bread to give to the ducks, and sure enough, the birds had a blast while the feeders had a great time, too!

We crossed the bridge along Hi-way 66 going West to the city of Marshfield and this is the railing of the bridge. I thought it is a neat subject, and so I pressed my shutter to get this.

In the middle of the bridge, this is the zoomed capture I’ve made of the NewPage Paper Plant

And here’s the bicycler’s smile of the very moi! Lol. On the “north veranda” of the bridge which was one of our pitstops.

 

Biking is one of the reasons why I was able to lower my blood pressure the entire summer. The three of us regularly spend an hour or two trekking the closest biking trails here in our place and I always feel relieved every time. Too bad because the cold season is fast approaching as it would mean me being stuck to an indoor exercise again. I always feel like it’s very enduring to do some treadmilling or Hulahooping via Wii Fit compared to walking/hiking or biking outside. I think I am born to be an outdoor adventurer but because it isn’t summer all year round in Central Wisconsin, I just have to find a way to deal with our weather the grateful way. :)
