I know that UWGB has a good XC ski team, there must be riders over there. Did'ja ask at one of the bike shops?

I from Green Bay also. Brian anderson was talking about the Fox River Trail which is a old rail Road. That runs about 20 miles. It doesn't do into Calumet county yet. They haven't spent any money to extend it. Eventually it will run down by Lake winebago. As far as other places to ride near Green Bay there is the Reforstration camp/ NEW zoo. There is 10 miles+ of single track and even More double. The WORS is having a race there on 7-15-07. I'm really looking forward to that. That will be my first race.

Man that brings back memories of several drives there just to ski on some snow, then drive back home. Cool place. I also did an XC ski race there ... -5F or something, I won the 15k race cuz I had more clothes covering my ... er, you know ... and the real fast guys did the 30k, but I still have that medal as my key chain. It was funny at the awards ceremony, because I was a nobody from Milwaukee, and everyone was looking at me ... who IS that??



My girlfriend at the time was going to school at UWGB and it seemed like a nice place to ride as well.
Isn't there a place called "The Ledge" or something that is a big climb??

Sorry for the divergence.

You can also try barret's creek area, off of hwy 172, it was a good place to ride, but you have to watch out for the paint ball geeks and bird watchers. Just make sure you stick to the correct trails, to many riders have made cut outs and sortcuts around technical areas...i would bet that mtn bikers will loose another place to ride if we dont shape up.
NewZoo area is also good, check out the trails near Kewanee ATV park, WORS has a race there every summer!
Im always looking for someone to ride with! have a jeep will travel!

Places to ride in GB

I live and ride in the Milwaukee area, but I have a friend I ride with who lives just north of GB. Ride out to UW-GB and follow the roads north along the bay. There are some good hills and long straight aways. To get as far north as Sturgeon Bay, you have to cross 41 (?) and head north up the middle of the Door Penninsula. But, there is a great riding community in the GB area.

You can also ride the trail west to Rib Mountain.

I did the WORS race there in August. Can you ride there anytime? Otherwise, from May to November Standing Rocks off Highway 10 near Point has ~ 13 miles of singletrack. Great workout. Not sure how far that is from GB.

I think that the Calumet Co park is open for bikes all summer. we were there a few weeks before the race and ended up in a few camp sites. really need a map.

Hi. I am doing a part time gig (1wk a month) in Green Bay WI and have always commuted to work by bike. Wondering what the bike commuter scene is like there. Also which LBS do you recommend? Thinking about bringing a folder or packing a regular bike in a bike box (will be flying in from the northeast monthly). I don't start until July so I have time to figure out my final arrangements. Mostly I am wondering how motorists deal with cyclists.
