There is no better way to fully appreciate the wonders of nature than by biking the beautiful Marshall County countryside. There are four marked bike routes for your choosing; 16 miles, 31 miles, 41 miles, and 63 miles all beginning at Webster Elementary School in Plymouth. Three of the bike routes will take you through the towns of Culver and Plymouth. While enjoying the scenery you can stop and get a delicious bit to eat at the Original Root Beer Stand in Culver or Opie’s Deli in Plymouth. The routes also circle around Lake Maxinkuckee, Indiana’s second largest lake.
Not only is biking a great exercise and a way to become more familiar with your community, its a great way to be “Green.” Biking saves gas, saves money, and helps to save the environment. You can help celebrate by participating in National Bike to Work Week, May 16-20, 2011 and National Bike Month is also this month.
Also, there is a fun and exciting biking event taking place this weekend in Culver, called Tour de Max. This annual bicycle tour through Marshall County allows you to chose from a 10 mile bike route, 30 miles bike route, or 63 mile bike route and all proceeds from the ride go back into the community as a whole.
