    Caro, MI

    [PERE] After stopping at Cops & Donuts for second breakfast, we rolled onto what may be the nicest rail-trail, in terms of facilities, that I've ever seen: The Pere Marquette Rail Trail. They must've been funded big time, but they also spent their money to excellent effect. Each junction has multiple signs giving nearby points of interest, a "you are here" map, trail etiquette rules, and more. There were bathrooms every few miles, park benches, beautiful rock fascia on bridges, and a nice smooth road surface. Sweet trail. I could almost forget how straight, flat, and generally boring the thirty miles of riding was. We fairly zoomed through at near twenty MPH in just an hour and a half.
