  • Matter and Rinehart win shortened Chequamegon 40
    Brian Matter and Jenna Rinehart won their sixth and fifth respective titles earlier today at the Chequamagon 40 on a course shortened to 38.5 miles due to recent rainfall and tree blowdown. 
  • Chequamegon 40 racers will be rerouted Saturday
    A reroute of the course for the Chequamegon Fat Tire 40 on Saturday will eliminate a tough, seven-mile stretch on the American Birkebeiner Ski Trail and send riders instead on a gravel fire lane, race officials announced late Thursday. 
  • A bitter battle over bike lanes blazes in Barrington Hills, Ill.
    The war of words has spilled onto the letters pages of a local newspaper and the editorial board has weighed in. 
  • Chequamegon Fat Tire Fest may be a mud fest
    Volunteers cleared downed trees and other debris from the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival courses over the weekend, but some route changes are still possible because of standing water left from a deluge last Thursday, the race director shared Monday. 
  • Mountain bikers pay for Chequamegon trail building
    The Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival and other mountain biking events have bankrolled a substantial amount of the singletrack that now exists in the Chequamegon area, nearly 90 miles worth, according to the Chequamegon Area Mountain Bike Association, which began building singletrack in 1999. 
  • Riverwest24 made me a believer in bicycling's power to change a community
    What exactly is Riverwest24? It’s a 24-hour bike ride, a block party, a homecoming, a dance and singing festival, a test of endurance, a holiday and a slumber party. But mostly it is a celebration of the kindness of neighbors and strangers.   
  • Paddling and pedaling the Red Cedar and Chippewa rivers and trails
    Wisconsin’s answer to Minnesota’s Root River for a premier paddle-and-pedal adventure is the Chippewa-Red Cedar River system.  
  • 'Bublr' clear winner as name of new bike share program in Milwaukee
    With the blue bikes and docking stations spreading around Milwaukee, I wondered just how Midwest BikeShare LLC came up with the name Bublr for the city's new bike share program. 
  • Music makes the wheels go round
    I’m not alone in seeing music and cycling go hand and hand, since both get their momentum from unique beats.  
  • A Root River paddle-pedal
    Would you do more paddling if you needed to do less shuttling? Is biking another of your chosen silent sports? If so, you can combine your love for paddling and biking on the same excursion by biking back to the put-in on a state trail. 
  • What do we think of e-bikes?
    I spotted the unusual machine pictured and puzzled over it. Clearly it's a full-suspension, electric-assist mountain bike, the likes of which I hadn't seen before.  
  • How to ride 24
    Twenty-four hour racing is largely determined by one’s equipment and physical readiness, but it also warrants a premeditated psychological strategy to endure the unknown places the wee hours will take a rider. 
  • My birthday ride
    Without thinking much about it in advance, I "biked my age" today. This being my birthday, it just seemed like the thing to do.  
  • A Trans-Iowa moment
    Trans-Iowa has been the sovereign of gravel grinders since it was brought forth 10 years ago by two guys sitting around a bike shop imagining a two-wheeled trek across Iowa that would shun pavement and comfort. 
  • Minnesota took the No. 2 spot in the latest ranking of “bike friendly states” as determined by the League of American Bicyclists. Wisconsin jumped from No. 8 to No. 3, approaching that state’s highest rank of No. 2 in 2010.
