Hoosier Daddy

"The Cardinal Greenway in Muncie stretches through Indiana countryside that may well have inspired the lyrics to 'America the Beautiful': Spacious skies, fruited plains, and amber waves of grain provide the backdrop to the rural parts of this trail."

 When BikerBuck read that description of Indiana's Cardinal Greenway Trail on, he knew exactly where he would be riding his 50th and final state. The description did not over-promise.

The 60-mile trail is an important part of the American Discovery Trail. BB rode the Muncie section.
The chilly, sunny weather was perfect...
...the scenery fascinating...
...with lots of public parks and facilities...
...with user-friendly features such as stair steps to viewpoints... areas...

... and an easy ridin' trail. The perfect place to end this adventure.

Mahalo, Muncie.
Thanks for the ride, Jamis.
Aloha, BikerBuck.

Mahalo nui loa to all of the family, friends, relatives and total strangers who have made this undertaking possible. Special thanks to my kids, Sara and Thaddeus for their cheer-leading...and a whopping thank you to Donivee, who has endured all of the frustration, indecision, mania, and miscues that have defined the 50-50. Not to mention the melted credit cards.

And a big tip of the helmet to Mr. Nick, without whom this project would no doubt have run amok somewhere in the Rockies.



  1. Hey! I know that this is a very random question, but could you tell me where exactly along the trail you found those steps at? Is it easily reachable by car? Thank you so much!
