One of the coolest ideas I’ve ever heard in my life is, oddly enough, a bike trail. Specifically, the Route of the Hiawatha trail in northern Idaho. It gets that name not directly from a person or a poem, but rather the Hiawatha trains that ran along the Milwaukee Road railroad system while it used to operate.
If you’ve inferred that the bike trail has this name because it runs across the old railroad lines, you are correct. The photo accompanying this post is taken from the official gallery and shows some bikers going over one of the trestles. Just look at that.
Someone I met at a wedding I attended earlier this month was telling me about this trail. I don’t know how to ride a bicycle, but it really, really made me want to learn.
