    So, I guess we simply keep this thread, and it's snazzy title, for the 2013 ride?

    I wish I could have attended this year. It looks like you guys had such a great time.

    I am SO planning on doing this ride next year.

    Fine by me.

    But it doesn't need to be in August only.

    Bike the Barns - the best food you have ever eaten on a ride - is in September. But the ride is full.

    I also go to Madison often. Pain and suffering within 10 miles. Let me know and I am happy to lead a ride.

    New Glarus - great hills and a great micro-brew to tour.

    Roxbury - great hills and the best pancakes.

    Cross Plains - great hills (Mound Mound climb is 10 miles away) and a great coffee/bike shop

    You choose. I'll ride anytime.

    Boy, if it's better than the Dodgeville cheerleaders' bratwurst at the rest stop... oh boy...

    I'd like to ride the bike highway N to the Dells. No traffic, excellent road.

    New Glarus - great hills and a great micro-brew to tour.
    When I was a kid, my folks took us to a yodel club there.

    Roxbury - great hills and the best pancakes.

    Cross Plains - great hills (Mound Mound climb is 10 miles away) and a great coffee/bike shop.
    My sister lives there, in berm subdivision. There is a hill there steeper than anything on DD, just off of PD.

    You choose. I'll ride anytime.
    I may be coming back to the area quite soon. I can ask Ullrich about that building you liked.

    I brought back an ample supply of Staghorn Oktoberfest.

    That was a great decision.

    and a solo bicycle shot.

    Thanks for the pic of what became the world's slowest Cinelli the next day....

    The important info: the blue/yellow Medici (bibliobob), the Mariposa (conspiratemus1)

    I'm going to find E_merlin an Ironman.

    Hmmm...

    County PD is down in Verona.

    Cross Plains has a County P and County KP, but no PD that I know of.

    There is a road off off P that some call the wall of death. Enchanted Valley perhaps? Not particularly long, but quite steep. Makes for a good appetite for pancakes at the Roxbury.

    Anybody else interested in this ride in Milwaukee? Definitely just a social ride, but sounds like fun. Beer, some food, and the t-shirt looks awesome! I think that a few folks from Chicago might be interested. I'm on call, but will try and get someone to cover me....

    I'm not exactly sure. As you go from Middleton towards Cross Plains on 14, the berm subdivision (Oak Valley, I think) is on the R. Just across from Oak Valley is where one of those county roads comes out. It parallels 14 a bit, heading west, with a farm located between 14 and the road, and then makes a sharp L to the south. Where it makes a sharp L, there is a small road that goes continues straigh, uphill. Several 4-wheelers have tipped over backwards on that hill, including one fatality (a power company engineer, checking lines).

    Haven't done it in 10 years. Heard complaints about traffic in recent years thanks to sprall. Anyone ridden it lately? It's my plan B if the Psychos century gets rained out on 8/26.

    I'll be on this, and yes, it is very much a social ride with some cool bikes, interesting taverns, and fun people. The always have cool shirts.

    I rode the first year this ride was held. It was fun, but more of a pub crawl than ride. It always seems to be scheduled the same weekend as the Door County Century, though, and the DCC is more my type of ride.

    2013 Dairyland Dare update:

    The event organizers think a C&V swap meet would be good. They also like Mineral Point for it.

    Once we get our act together, they'll probably provide a link on their event site. It could be fun, and draw not only more riders, but timed right, could be a pretty nice swap meet. Of course, I'm only thinking of other's needs for parts, and not my own...... heh heh.

    The super-secret, double-password goal is to draw hordes and hordes of C&V aficianado's, and then, of course, the groupies.

    I'm also working on a unique SAG vehicle. Something C&V. Between Mineral Point and Hollandale sits a barn holding a '55 Chevy Pickup with a '70 GTO drivetrain. I also know a guy with a Vega wagon that has a 283 in it. Kind of like our STI/Ergo thread.....

    And a helmet cam.

    And babysitting. We've got that in the mill, for those that need it.

    Sorry for the late response. The idea of a vintage bikes swap meet on Friday is a very cool idea. We will have our hands very full on the date, but could certainly help out in the months leading up to the event. I think Mineral Point would be a great place for it. If you contact the MP chamber of commerce I think you could get some support in the way of another calendar listing and some guidance on a venue. I’m thinking Walker House, MP Opera house, or Green Lantern Gallery. I think it would be incredibly cool for all the vintage owners to put their bikes on display in one place for other cyclists (and non-cyclists to enjoy).

    Did anybody ride this? I would love to hear feedback on the event.

    Hope everyone is well!
