According to teh Google, UWM is 6.5 miles from where I live in Bay View. Today, I took that ride via bicycle. And it was great! I took KK up to First Street, and that to Pittsburgh, through the Fifth Ward and past the Summerfest grounds, and up along the lakeshore. I didn’t know that some of the areas back there even existed! Before I knew it the magnificent wings of the Milwaukee Art Museum and Calitrava Center were rising over my bike and a sparkling Lake Michigan lay on my right. Moments later I was approaching Veterans Park and Lafayette Hill! I cruised straight up the big hill on Lincoln Memorial, which wasn’t that bad via bike, and got to UWM with a HUGE grin on my face. I showered at the Klotche Center and now have an hour or so to kill before my first class. WOOHOO!!@#!
