|Ed Pope & David Kennedy riding a trail in Wisconsin|
I went with a group of friends on a week-long Wisconsin cycling trip in 2006. We started in Baraboo in the center of the state. Our route included the Elroy-Sparta Trail, which has three railroad tunnels on it. Continuing west, we reached the Mississippi River at La Crosse. We saw some eagles as we headed south along the river before turning east towards Baraboo. On some of the trails we saw sandhill cranes. I really enjoyed biking through the rural areas of Wisconsin. The farms and natural areas are very pretty.
