Day 50 - July 31, Waukesha Wisconsin to Grand Haven Michigan, 36 miles

Today we took bike paths and city streets from the suburb town of Waukesha to the Milwaukee Lake Express Ferry.  The ferry took us 80 miles across Lake Michigan making 31 knots to its docking port in Muskegon Lake.  From Muskegon we took US Bicycle Route 35 to Grand Haven.   Short day of riding but a long day overall. 

Just another great Wisconsin bike trail, the Hank Aaron State Trail runs west to east through much of the city with very few road crossings and smooth as glass. 

The Horticulture Conservatory was right next to the trail but not yet open when we were there. 

The Ferry Express on the way into port at Milwaukee to pick us up.   This catamaran boat can carry up 46 cars, 12 motorcycles, 20 bicycles, 250 people.  Today there were sold out on cars. 

Bicycles are loaded first and strapped to the side walls of the the auto bay.  

Off the ferry at Muskegon and ready to ride
