There are paved trails all around that area. They're a part of the Oak Leaf Trail system (Maps of the Oak Leaf Trail
). You can ride from Veterans Park north to Port Washington (30 miles) or if you navigate about a mile of city streets, you can ride the south side of the trail from Bay View to Grant Park. Also, nearby is the Hank Aaron State Trail
which heads west almost 10 miles and connects to other parts of the Oak Leaf Trail out west, and also connects to Brookfield and New Berlin paved trails.
As far as the city is concerned, it's very bike friendly. Lots of bike lanes, most important and/or interesting things are close by, and enough alternate routes to avoid traffic if it gets bad.
I live in Milwaukee, so let me know if you have any other questions.
