I live a few hours North, and I’m getting stir crazy on the trainers. I have a friend in Madison (nonbiker) who says its been unseasonably dry. I know there is some great riding to be had in Mad town, but are the trails open and rideable? I don’t want to visit and not be able to ride if the trails are still wet.
I’m here in Milwaukee, where it has been “dry” for weeks. However, we are still deep in the infamous spring thaw. I wouldn’t expect the trails to be open for awhile. That said, my favorite ride in Madison is Quarry Ridge. Although it’s small, it acts as a little bike park with awesome downhill trails. It’s a perfect getaway from the typical Wisconsin XC singletrack.
