I had to ride the county W hills through the Nemadji river valley. The bad part of that is that about a mile of that is rough gravel road.
I do not know if the the grass is greener on the other side of the fence....but there is definitely a lot more grass.

Crystal Lake BATS trail??? We rode from the Crystal Lake State Park to Boulder Junction. It was a 22 Mile ride on an asphalt with some very nice scenery. It was 11 miles up to Boulder Junction and in that 11 miles, I counted 94 other bicyclist's. I did not count on the way back. Very popular trail. Most were families out enjoying the nice day. Below are some pictures from today's ride.
This is a large lake that I rode by this morning...Trout Lake

Duluth is lucky to have people that not only build and maintain trails that are in existence, but also expand the single track system in the city. They have a new trail system they are "riding in" by the Piedmont area. Have not been there yet...but will be.
I did not take pictures today, but will get back there in the future and get some.
Two hours of gnarly single track with five friends...no wait four friends...can't be beat. Simply an awesome time.

Stopped at this rest area on WI state highway 35. This was about 2 hours into the ride home. Shortly after this stop, I turned to go with the wind for 11 miles. That was nice.
My wife left the house riding her bicycle towards the direction I was coming from. We met about 7.5 miles from home.

This is an area where there is a Red Pine planting. They come in and aerial spray it to keep the oaks, grass and deciduous from growing. Some of the chemicals they use are Accord, Accent and Garlon. It basically kills everything but the Pines and also works as a fertilizer.
Arrival at the cabin and a nice swim after.
I was going to ride home also, but being the Forth of July and in the evening, I accepted a ride.

This is where the trail splits...right to Durand...left to Eau Claire...back to Menomonie.
You are required to have a pass to ride the state trails in Wisconsin. It is $20.00 annually or I think $5.00 for a daily. We met this gentleman on the trail checking to see that we had one....and we did. It is money well spent....going for a great cause. This officer bears a remarkable resemblance to our oldest son.
