I'm in the process of moving to Milwaukee, and I could use a little local insight into the state of the bike trails / MUPs in and around town.
We are a one-car family, and I tend to cart the kids around by bike and like to keep 'em off the roads as much as possible (for a number of reasons). I've got two main questions:
1. Are there a bunch of barriers to keep motorized vehicles off the trail? If there are, how navigable would they be with a trailer, or better yet a long cargo bike like this one:
2. How 'safe' are they after dark, in terms of baddies hanging out doing bad things? I'm no shrinking violet, but like to know what I'm getting into...
Thanks in advance!
