Pumpkinvine Bike Trip- Shipshewana to Middlebury

Since the summer seems to be rushing right by, if we don't say "let's just go now", then it won't happen. After hearing about this part of the pumkinvine trail being finished, we decided we had better try it out. What a great ride!

The trail started at Ed's Supply in Shipshewana. We parked at Ed's, but then once getting back to the van, we realized there was a sign there that said, no parking. Oops! From Shipshewana it went all the way across the country side to Middlebury, right to Dairy Queen. What a great treat after a long ride!
As soon as we got to Dairy Queen, it started to sprinkle. We figured we would be riding back in the rain, but when we left the clouds rolled away and the sun came out. What a great trip! And who can pass up Dairy Queen? : ) A 12 mile bike ride round trip. Some were too tired by the time we got back and some were ready to ride more. Some road circles around others and one could have cared less what happened to him. : ) I, the mom, am just glad that we are all healthy and able to ride our bikes, enjoy the weather and be treated to food at a restaurant. I don't want to take anything for granted. Everything we have is a blessing to us!
