I might come downtown this year. This is only my 2nd year in Madison and last year it rained so I elected to drive out to Verona and it was an awesome experience anyway. It was neat seeing all the family support from all around the country. This year I plan to ride out there, and then ride on bike paths back to downtown. I think the pros end up finishing around 3:30 pm or so. Chris McDonald (of Gatorade fame) was speaking today. As with some of the tough rides noted on this forum, I live vicariously through other tougher bike riders, although from your ride report on WSC, I might give that a go next year.
Any other Madisonians going to watch?
Yum, brunch, my favorite meal. Used to go all the time, but now biking "interferes." I'll start up again in winter.
I suppose I should qualify that my 10th floor perch is not from a luxurious downtown condo, but rather, a state office building.
