Come join us for a ride along the
Glacial Drumlin State Trail. The trail has a
crushed limestone surface and is suitable for hybrid bikes or road bikes with wider tires. The trail runs along an abandoned railroad line and is very flat. We'll break into groups depending on speed, so everyone should be able to ride with others of comparable speed. There will also be 2 route distances for you to choose from. The total distance of the
short route is about
18 miles, which takes us to the town of Deerfield. (9 miles out and 9 miles back). The total distance of the
long route is about
32 miles, which takes us to the town of Cottage Grove. (16 miles out and 16 miles back).
We'll stop for lunch during the ride, so bring lunch money and a lock and cable for your bike. After our ride, we'll head over to
Tyranena Brewing Company in Lake Mills to relax and have a drink.
Plan to arrive between 9:30 AM and 9:45 AM. We will push-off promptly at 10:00 AM.
Our specific meeting location is at the trailhead parking lot in Lake Mills, where the Glacial Drumlin State Trail crosses Highway 89. Highway 89 is also known as County Road A in Lake Mills.
Note: A Wisconsin state trail pass is required to ride on the trail. We will stop at a self-serve station along the trail, where you may purchase a daily trail pass in case you have not yet purchased an annual trail pass.
