    I grew up on the so. side of Milw. I Knwo what you mean. Hey--at least they but a bike lane on Howell Ave now--although the motorists just consider it to be a really small turning lor merge ane I think. The one time i rode down Howell in the bike lane i had a constant banter of horns, figures and obscenities hurled at me.

    Down in Milwaukee also but I could hook you up with some guys in FDL it's a little closer to GB.

    I commute on the southside as many days as possible from W. Milw to BayView and only occasionally have trouble with cars. My big problem is flats from riding past the dump on Lincoln!

    What kind of tires? Lincoln and what cross street? I did not know there was a dump over there.

    Lincoln between 43rd and 35th. It's the cities southside H2O distrubution yard, municipal garage, transfer station, self help dump, tow lot, and unclaimed car recycling all in a row. I've taken to riding the sidewalk for those couple of blocks as the debris isn't quite so bad. 700 X 25 continentals on my hybrid.

    Well there are a few places here in the Green Bay area to ride. First of all is Baird Creek Park....most riders go there. There is also the Reforestation Camp (NEW zoo area) I love going there..lots of singletrack. Being I"m still new Baird is a bit too technical for me..but it has places for beginner to advanced.

    Hope this helps. There are other areas around too..LIke Kewaunee, Calumet, etc.

    Do you compete in any WORS races?

    I'm in west allis too, commute from their to brookfield for work. Use to ride downtown before getting new job, pretty much ride city streets everywhere. I have popped so many tires from garbage on the sides of the rode, that is my biggest problem.

    I had to ride to that tow lot to pick up my car after I hadn't driven it in weeks because my bike had taken over. They towed me because my car had been parked in the same sspot for more than 24 hours. Couldn't believe it.

    I used to commute all over Milwaukee visiting all my friends. From the Eastside (Right next to the Pasta Tree on Farwell) but now I live in Chicago

    I live in Downtown Appleton, but most often ride in Neenah or in Oshkosh. Good country road riding in both areas and a nice 25 mile trail that goes from Oshkosh to Hortonville. If anyone is in these areas, let me know.

    The Wiowash Trail runs from Oshkosh to Hortonville, and I usually pick i up in Medina off old Highway 10 (now 96, I think) West of town. It's about 8 miles for me from downtown, there's a liquidator store across the street from a large parking lot where the trail picks up, just east of county M.

    There's also a trail out near greenleaf by Wrightstown. I don't know exactly where it is, but Greenleaf isn't that large a town. They ask for a $2 or so fee to ride the trail.

    They're both fairly flat and straight, but the Wiowash does have some small overpasses and a turn here and there.

    Best-
    Brian

    Yeah, that's about all I know as far as trails are concerned. If there's a "real" trail, I'd certainly like to hear about it.

    Try Calumet county park on the east side of Lake Winibago. They have some nice trails that wind up and down a ski hill. Maps at the park office.
    arg, that hurt
