Prior to moving to Madison, the last bike I owned was a Nashville Predators themed bike I won at the age of 9, so it had been a while since I found myself in the saddle. Upon my arrival here, I discovered the city’s rich biking culture as well as its system of paths and knew I had to take advantage of all it had to offer. After a couple of years of riding and exploring, I feel like I know my way around town on a bike pretty decently.
(Big thanks to Jacci Ziebert for creating this subway style path map!)
I must give an honorable mention to the Military Ridge and Badger Trails. If you are seeking a longer ride, I definitely suggest these!
We really are fortunate to live in a city with such a sophisticated system of paths, as well as bike lanes to connect the dots in between. I recommend getting out and enjoying a ride while the warm weather is here. Happy Bike Week, Madison!
