This last weekend, I teamed up with a couple of riding buddies and set off on a three-day, 270-mile tour to central Wisconsin. I rode the Devil.
Friday: Rode from Madison to Hartmann Creek State Park with stops in Montello for lunch, Wautoma for rest, and at the Wheelhouse near Waupaca for fish fry and beer. We capped off the day with a swim and a campfire.
Saturday: After a saunter around one of the lakes in the park, we rode to Plover for brunch at Christian’s Bistro and a beer at the O’so tap house, then rode to Amherst for more beer at the Central Waters brewery, with dinner ordered in from the Ambrosia. We then took a six-pack back to the park and spent some more time around the campfire.
Sunday: Rode back to Madison with stops for breakfast in Wild Rose, lunch in Montello, and rest and cold drinks in Portage. And true to form, we stopped for more beer and pizza in Madison before we went our separate ways.
Overall, it was a great trip. Bikes, friends, beer, camping, and the open road. More of that to come, to be sure.
