Cycling the Sugar River Trail in Green County Wisconsin
Early riding.
Early morning on a rustic road.

Recently Mr. Olson and friends Jerry and Frank, spent the day riding near and on the Sugar River Trail in Wisconsin. The trail is an old railroad right-of-way. It runs from Broadhead to New Glarus and is about 23 miles long. Many beautiful rustic roads follow the same general path. On this day we traveled the roads to New Glarus and the bike trail back.

By dawn we had already biked 15 miles!
