The Oak Leaf River Trail offers you a nice "soft-shelled" way to get the know Milwaukee. As the Milwaukee River makes its way through the northern reaches of the city, a ribbon of park winds with it. Park at the Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM), and ride along the outer stretch of Veterans Park. The trail is entirely paved and features many places to stop along the way. Many of the parks are not the type to offer parking lots, but rather the kind you might stroll through or sit down in to read the paper on a bench. Aside from a few places where you'll have to stop on account of traffic, you can pick up some good speed in these parks without causing too much of a stir. Things to see: Milwaukee River.
