Last weekend I really enjoyed riding in the Green Lake Wisconsin area. Ended up riding 178 miles between Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Saturday there happened to be a ride organized by Big Brothers Big Sisters that I participated in. The highlight of my riding was coming across two Amish (or Mennonite?) boys on rollerblades and racing them, much to everyone's delight, including a group of Amish boys and girls onlookers from a nearby barn. The Green Lake Chamber of Commerce has wisely added bike routes to their website as a way to lure visitors to the area. I found many lightly traveled, smoothly surfaced roads with plenty of hills for added fun. I'm dying to find out what the % grade is on Swamp Road, just north of Princeton/Old Green Lake road is.
