I'm doing a tour of Wisconsin in a few weeks and I'm trying to find the best way to get by bike from the Western Edge of the glacier Drumlin trail to Gorham Street. Any suggestions?

Gday Mate!! When I lived in Wisconsin I used to take my kids to the Ice Age trail often. This website might help

What parts of WI are you going to be touring?
I'm cutting across the lower part of the state East to South, starting from my apartment in milwaukee. I'm looking to stop at a friends apartment in Madison, but I've never biked there and I'd like to take the easiest route possible.

Ahh that is a nice area to ride. Mad town is a cool town,lots of bike support there.
If you ever think about touring anywhere north you'll have to get in touch with me. I am always looking for tour partners. The wife isn't to keen on riding.....lol.
Have fun and remember to stop and smell the roses.

The Glacial Drumlin ends in Cottage Grove. When you get to the end of the trail, you are at Hwy N. Go north on N (turn right) for a bit over 1 mile. You come to Hwy BB, turn left (heading east). This can be a fairly busy road at times, just try to avoid rush hour. Hwy BB turns into Cottage Grove road, stay on Cottage grove past I-90 and past Hwy 51. 2 blocks past Hwy 51 is Dempsey road, take a right (heading north). The bike path is on the left, about 1 block from Cottage Grove Road. Follow the bike path for a couple of miles, until the bike path runs on a city street for a few blocks. At this point you are in downtown Madison, and the capitol should be in plain view. go on the city street for a few blocks, and the bike path starts again (just follow the signs). When you are back on the bike path, go 2 blocks and take a right on Patterson street. The bike path runs exactly parrallel to Gorham, so go 5 or 6 blocks on Patterson and you run into Gorham. I think I ended up making this sound more difficult than it is, but It really isn't very confusing. Please post again if you have any questions.
