Planet Bike calls Wisconsin home, one of our favorite states for bicycling. The state’s Bicycle Council is currently implementing USBR 30, which runs across the state, traveling almost exclusively on trails, and meets up with USBR 37, which travels the state’s Lake Michigan coast.
Learn more about the company’s roots in Madison, WI and the top five things they are most excited about in the bicycling world in an interview we recently did with them >>
Another top 5 for you! Ginny and Saara, our staff working on the USBRS, blogged about bicycle friendly parks and highlighted the top five success stories from our last two years of engagement with the National Park Service.
