The Chimichanga Ride

  • May 4, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for a ride in celebration of El Cinco de Mayo.

We will ride from Dousman to our lunch destination, La Estacion in Waukesha, via the Glacial Drumlin State Trail The total distance for the ride is about 28 miles, 14 miles to our lunch destination and 14 miles back.  The trail, which runs along an abandoned railroad line and is very flat, has a paved surface and is suitable for any bike.  Once we reach Waukesha, we will ride about a mile on the local roads to the restaurant.

Since we are stopping for lunch during the ride, remember to bring lunch money and a lock and cable for your bike.

Plan to arrive by 10:00 AM. We will push-off promptly at 10:30 AM.

Our ride will begin from the parking lot across from Bicycle Doctor, right along the Glacial Drumlin State Trail, in Dousman.

Directions: Take I-94 to Wisconsin 67.  Exist south on Wisconsin 67 to US 18.  Turn right on US 18 and follow the signs to Dousman.  Turn left on Main Street, which will take you into downtown.  Just before the trail, you will see Bicycle Doctor on your right and parking on your left.

Trail Pass Information

Note: A Wisconsin state trail pass is required to ride on the Glacial Drumlin State Trail. You may purchase a trail pass at Bicycle Doctor if needed.

    It was a great time today except for the extra six mile hilly part that a few of us took since we went the wrong way. We thought we were following the right people but guess we took the wrong fork in the road. All in all great first ride did over 30 miles and feeling good!

    I'd be interested in carpooling out and back with someone, either in my car or someone else's. If I drive I can only take one other person (because we took the back seat out of our car to make more room for bikes and camping gear -- have to have the priorities right!). I live near the UW Madison campus.

    • Kent W

      Don, I'm on Regent just west of Camp Randall, so not far from you. Maybe I can catch a ride in your truck?

      May 3, 2014

    • Kent W

      Don, whoops, wrong ride -- I thought this was next weekend's ride, sorry. I have a conflict for tomorrow.

    I was really hoping I could make this ride, such good weather and so much fun last year. Something important came up with the family. I hope you all have fun and hope to see you this summer.

    Carpooling: I can easily fit one more person in my Ford Expedition (and 1 more bike on my awesome rack), if anyone is interested. Preferably someone who is kinda "on the way" ...... I live a "long putt" away from the entrance to the Odana Golf Course, and will be driving this route:

    Just to let everyone know if you need a trail pass the Bicyle Doctor bike shop does not open until 12 noon on Sundays. See you all soon.

    April 21, 2014

    • Ron

      Dora, Thank you for letting us know. Everyone will still be able to purchase their trail pass at one of the self-serve stations along the trail. Or, better yet, you can buy an annual pass ($20) before the ride and use it all year long.
