    The way the long range weather prediction is sounding, you'll mostly have to deal with cold temps and darkness, with the occasional snowfall. You can ride just about everything on a MTB, so wider...

    Having only looked at the course on the map, any suggestions of 'interesting' shoot locations? Loose gravel is a top pick of course, pure desolation might be interesting, anything else?

    Guess I'm first. :)

    As a former racer, I would venture that with a 53/39 that the 12-25 should be sufficient as an all around setup. It might get tough if you race at Greenbush, or Holy Hill...

    Yeah, if you're used to climbing, then that's a great ride. Most 'normal' people would find that area brutal to ride. :) It's beautiful, no doubt, but pack a granny gear.

    The southwest part of the state is VERY hilly. Central very flat. The rest is 'rolling'.

    I guess it depends on what your other interests might be, I...

    My first real ride of the year. 45 mins of MTB on the Racine County gravel bike path. Rather wet and slow, but it was 60+ and sunny. First day of the frogs croaking...

    Drivers in Wisconsin share the road pretty well, but like everywhere, there are some that are clueless behind the wheel. Drunk driving is a real problem.

    I've been mowed down from behind, almost killed. I don't like 'hanging out' in the middle of traffic, painted lines on the road don't offer much safety.

    Glad you enjoyed it. I remember riding it as a kid when they first paved it back in the early '70's. It wasn't as wide nor as long as it is now. It really is a treasure.

    I won't make it, but will be looking for reports from those who do. Should be a good time as always.
