Mad Town Swiss Getaway

Ride Description

Madison (home) to the local grocery for snacks on the ride, then hopping on the Capitol City Trail, which connects with the Southwest Commuter Path, which connects with the Badger State Trail (crushed limestone - annual trail pass is $25, daily pass is $5 per rider over 16yo), and we take the Badger State Trail almost all the way there! Partway there, we'll go through a 1200-foot old railroad tunnel on the trail, which is a fun part of riding rails-to-trails trails. We'll ride a few country roads to get us to the Sugar River Trail, which takes us into New Glarus, a small town in southern Wisconsin settled by Swiss settlers. It's the home of lots of Swiss-Chalet-looking buildings and New Glarus Brewery!

We'll overnight in New Glarus at the Chalet Landhaus Inn, and plan to partake in some local foods and beers.

On Sunday we'll ride back home to Madison the same way - it always seems a different trail in each direction!
