Enjoy plenty of ups and downs along this route as you follow a series of nearly perfect cycling roads outside of LaPorte, Indiana. Take a break from the rolling—sometimes hilly—terrain as you follow the shoreline of a couple of lakes north of town. At Stone Lake, you may want to take a dip in the lake and then unpack the pannier for a picnic. Sometimes called “The City of Lakes,” LaPorte, Indiana, is unusual for the many natural bodies of water clustered tightly together on the north side of the town. In addition to the scenic lakes and plenty of local parkland, LaPorte hosts a collection of large Victorian homes, an extensive local history museum, and a well-appointed courthouse in the center of town. Sound idyllic? Well, not always. On the north edge of LaPorte, you’ll pass near a place where morbid events interrupted life in this peaceful town during the early years of the twentieth century.
