Story

The Plainfield to Indy Bike Hub Bike Train is on-street until reaching downtown.  The first 2 miles is on the wide shoulder of US 40, followed by 2 miles on the wide shoulder of calm North Perimeter Road.  The next 5.5 miles are on 2-lane streets with only occasional shoulders, but interaction with motor vehicle traffic is manageable.  Most of the rest of the route is on calm side streets, the south White River Trail, and the Indianapolis Cultural Trail.  The Ride Conductor will be glad to arrange a test ride during a calmer time on a weekend, if someone would like to try that first before adding the complications of preparing for work.
