Do this.

"That's all I have to say about that..."
Or host your own group.

Would be fun. Will be fun.

Come to Hollandale. Your other folk can spend time in Mineral Point, or locally. Take a couple-three days and really enjoy the comfort of the attitude and approach.

We can all report back with pictures, and when we speak about "Coppi in 2019", the world will wonder what the secret was, and why didn't everyone?

A given.

Please? You're one of the guys I always wanted to meet.

I'd be surprised if there aren't 3 campgrounds within 10 miles.
In fact, YellowstoneLake (the Wisconsin one) is very close.
When we did Bartali's 100th, there was a British classic car show going on there at the same time.
Old Jags everywhere, and that was just the cars.

You can go right into Mineral Point's strip, expanded long ago by Land's End. I can find you wheels, and there's an Enterprise right in Mineral Point.

Iowa County, found it thanks. I can cram up to 2 bikes in so I should be good in that regards. It's like a clown car show with wings.

Yes, and if you bring someone not interested in bikes, the House on the Rock is right down the road. As is Taliesen, Frank Lloyd Wright's place. Mineral Point is a place to visit all its own. Tons to do. I plan on taking in high school football on Friday night.

I'm registered and looking forward to meeting you knuckleheads.
If Cino makes a comeback in 2019, it will make an awfully nice road trip, riding that the weekend before Coppi.
