Ride the Monon Trail: A Challenge to You

OCTOBER 8, 2015 • JEFF ROBINSON
Blink and winter will be here. It's time to take full advantage of fall and squeeze in as much quality time outdoors as possible. For me, that means time on a bike. There is no better ride this time of year than the city's first and most prized trail, the Monon Rail Trail. With a canopy of red, yellow, and orange that pops for a short window every year time is of the essence.
