Whether biking with friends or biking alone,
There are countless places in Indy unknown.
Just think of your city and get on your bike,
You'll cover more ground than if you were to hike.
Hop on a trail, there's plenty to choose,
But don't forget your helmet, your gloves and your shoes.
The Cultural Trail shows views of downtown,
Or enjoy Indy Greenways from sun-up to sun-down.
You'll stumble on art that peppers the city
To our cultural landscape, you'll find a new entry.
Just follow the River to learn about Flow,
There's more to that waterway than I ever did know.
From goslings and ducklings to turtles in shadow,
The wildlife you see rivals that of Attenborough.
Fishermen draw food from our city's main vein,
And along the White River you might spy a crane.
I learned domestic birds tend to poop,
At least that was true for this urban chicken coop.
A fountain is nice for when you get heated
Breeze through the spray and find yourself treated.
Shel's questions find answer in every road bend,
Like this picture of where a sad sidewalk ends.
But whether ye be egg, bone or deadhead,
Make sure you always yield to those peds.
Lastly, there's one thing that makes Indy distinct
The landscape you see changes in a blink.
Our Circle City skyline gives way to wonder
But our views rarely lay unencumbered.
You'll see the smog rise from heavy industry,
And five minutes later feel secluded in nature.
Our city's landmarks you'll pass on your journey,
And find yourself stopped by an in-process structure.
Just never forget that when you are done,
To make sure you stop and stretch your tendons.
