Bike Ride on Beerline Trail

FORGE Outdoors bike ride

For this week’s FORGE Outdoors activity, we will be going for a bike ride along the Beerline Trail and exploring some of Milwaukee’s most exciting urban parks! We will meet at Gordon Park and continue through the Riverwest/lakefront area. The ride is around 4 miles, but more hilly than our first bike ride on the Oak Leaf Trail. It also includes more off-trail street biking! We will take frequent breaks at our scenic stops and enjoy refreshments at Fuel Cafe on the way back to Gordon Park.
Time: 1-4 PM.
Location: We will meet at Gordon Park (2828 N Humboldt Blvd, Milwaukee, WI 53212) at the splash pad! Gordon Park has a large parking lot if you are driving, and is accessible by bus lines 22 and 14, which stop at Humboldt & Locust. We will make several stops along the Beerline trail, including Kadish Park, the Swing Park, and a secret climbing wall along the river! We will return along the Beerline Trail and stop at Fuel Cafe on Center St. (18 E Center St, Milwaukee, WI 53212) for refreshments. For those who parked at Gordon Park, we will return there at the end of our trip.
If you have transportation questions, please contact me at caleb@forge-forward.org. If you arrive on Sunday and have trouble finding our meeting spot, please call or text me at 414-249-6746.
What to bring: Yourself, your bike, a helmet(!), a water bottle, sunscreen, comfortable and weather-appropriate clothing, snacks (optional), and some pocket money for drinks at Fuel! I would recommend bringing $3-$5 if you would like to buy a refreshment when we stop. It’s very important to stay hydrated and comfortable, so make sure that you can move freely in your clothing. If you are binding, please be especially careful not to overheat, and drink plenty of water! We will take as many breaks as needed.
This bike ride is shorter than our first bike ride on the Oak Leaf Trail, but may be more physically strenuous because of hills. We can walk steep hills if necessary and turn our bike ride into a bike & hike adventure! Please be mindful of this when deciding whether this outing is for you, and contact me with any questions. We will do our best to make this ride as comfortable for everyone as possible.
Please bring any personal medication, such as inhalers or epi-pens, even if you do not think you will need them on this outing. Your safety is extremely important!
What’s next?: Mark your calendars! The next FORGE Outdoors outing will be on Sunday, July 7th. This week we will be slowing down for some walking meditation and other mindfulness practices at the labyrinth in Alice’s Garden! Keep an eye out for future FORGE Outdoors activities this summer!
