It turns out, this is called the East West Trail.
East West Trail
It runs east-west (duh!) for 2 miles from Division Ave. to Kalamazoo Ave. just north of 52nd St.
I'll have to check out that north-south trail west of Division, too!
Thanks, Google Maps bicycling directions!
Lots of people were out enjoying the 60 degree F temperature and sun.
Enjoying the sun
Some parts of the trail are cuter than others, but I loved it all!
Even though this was supposed to be a training ride, I was just having too much fun being outside on my bike and taking pictures. I attempted a few "panda" shots. I think the people walking by me thought I was silly and bound to crash, but I didn't care. This one came out best.
After exploring the East West Trail, I rode down busy Kalamazoo Ave. to the Southbelt Trail and then connected back onto the Thornapple River Trail. It was great to see so many people using the trail for biking, walking, running, roller blading, scooting on Rasers and sitting in the sun.

Soon the trees will flower and everything will turn green again. And people wonder why I love cycling so much.

Bike 75 minutes (14.9 miles)
Generally an easy pace today, enjoying the sun, the view, the ride.
