Family bike ride

We (myself, wife, 5yo daughter) are thinking of doing a family bike ride on the Elroy-Sparta Trail (WI). This is a rails to trails path about 32 miles long. Rails to trails => no hills.

It would be a slow paced ride ~10mph with stopping and shopping in various towns along the path.

Thinking about a July weekend.

Anyone interested?

I've been thinking this may be the year to take the kids up for their first ride on the trail . . .

I was thinking about going up and camping in Wilton the weekend of July 31-Aug 2 -- its their annual Wood Turtle Days (parade, fireworks, the Lion's club used to have a pancake breakfast - assume they still do, etc.) -- although the wife is kinda down on the camping part.

No formal plans yet, so let's talk . . .

Anyone else?

Sounds good but I start working weekends again after the 4th of July, so I'm out.

Tentatively planning a vacation (Disney World) beginning the first weekend in August.

Was thinking the second or third weekend in July. We would be camping also, but most don't consider a travel trailer as camping

Anybody ever stay at the Leon Valley Campground near Sparta?
