Day 55 - August 5, Peru to Muncie, 73 miles

Today started crisp and cool again in the low 50s.  We got to ride several trails; Converse Junction, Sweetser Switch, and Cardinal Greenway. They are well maintained paved trails that are part of the Rails to Trails system.  There are numerous trailheads along the way with bathrooms, pavilions, picnic tables and trail maps.  At one beautiful picnic stop in the forest on the Cardinal Greenway we met Bob.  Bob rides the trails on a regular basis and provided us with great info on the route ahead and where to get a good meal.  Thanks Bob!  Bob let us know that the Cardinal Greenway has quite the community following with many committed volunteers. 

Some of the trailheads feature old rail cars from when the trails where rails.  These are displayed on the Sweetser Switch

To get to our hotel from the trail in Muncie we used Google Maps.  We were joking about Google taking us down a gravel single track trail when to our surprise …
