One of the most common rides my neighbor and I will take before work is the Granville Bridge Route. It’s only 9 miles, and it’s easy to fit into 50 minutes before breakfast.
Start at the intersection of Division and Newman Roads west of West Lafayette. Head west on Division. At the intersection of Division and River, turn right on Division and continue west. Turn left on 700 W and stop at the top of the bridge. Talk about the blue herons and the height of the river. Return along the same route.
When returning, take River Road east from Division, pass the house with the gourds in the tree, and turn north on 350W to return to Division road. Continue east back to Newman.
