Bike the City

On July 4th, four people began their beautiful Saturday morning with an adventure to discover some lesser-known (for us) eateries and neighborhoods in South Bend. “Bike & Eat South Bend” was a project started last fall to showcase eateries that weren’t well advertised, or were more neighborhood-centric, and to do so by bicycle.  More here: or on FB: . Last fall we did Western Avenue, so it was time to find a new focus, hence the need to Bike the City and rediscover our options.  We did a full tour of Prairie St. and all the streets around it, and a bit less full tour of the neighborhoods around Miami, Mishawaka Ave, Lincolnway West, and a bit on/off Portage. We finished our tour relaxing with a very tasty scone and coffee from the NNN’s Local Cup coffeehouse on Portage. There were a lot of great finds – a lot of tiendas and convenience stores, a lot of neighborhood bars, and some eateries.  Lots of cool houses, neat neighborhoods, interesting parks. A great way to explore the city!! In total we clocked around 25 miles on our bikes…not bad for roaming around a city.  A mere sampling of our discoveries are below.
