Glacial Drumlin State Trail and Tyranena Brewing Company

  • May 30, 2010 · 9:30 AM
  • Glacial Drumlin State Trail - Lake Mills

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.

    Another fun day of riding! Breakfast in Cottage Grove was great and it was nice to take a long break from the heat and humidity. We even had a slight tailwind and downhill on the way back that was much appreciated.

    This was my first ride with this Meetup but I will be back for more. I met a lot of interesting people and had some good conversations both on-bike and at the food break.

    For this particular ride, the food options at the halfway part made the trip special.

    We didn't make it to meet the group due to tire troubles, but we followed two hours later on the short route. Hot but pleasant!

    Somehow I once again got separated from the entire group on the trail. Still had fun biking one of my favorite trails solo. I saw deer, chipmunks, a family of geese, and numerous other birds.

    great -- nice route, really good group. We took the short route and I think not many others did, so when we got to tyrannena we were the first ones, despite being much slower than everyone else. We then went to the beach! Totally fun!

    Great ride for the day, enough shade to make it feel a little cooler and lunch in cottage grove was great.

    It's supposed to be 84 & sunny on Sunday. Perfect day to head over to Sandy Beach on Rock Lake afterwards (it's only a few blocks from where we start & end our ride). The beach & lake are really clean, there are some nice volleyball courts if anyone wants to play, & there's a restaurant there if you need food or beverages.

    I need to get me and my bike out to the trail-head before I can say 'Yes". Anyone willing to carpool from the west or Near West side of Madison?

    Trail is pretty good for roadies.

    Yep! This was Dan's idea. Great idea too! Looking forward to it and hoping Dan can make it since he suggested it.
