I can't be the only one in northern ozaukee who prefers fat tires and dirt to the inter-urban trail. So, my question is, is there anywhere around here to ride that I can get to quickly on the bike? It's hard for me to get away even for the half hour drive to New Fane, much less either the north or south kettles.

If not, does anyone know of any interest in working with local government to build a trail up here? Lots of open spaces, and places like Hawthorne Hills seem to be prime candidates. I suppose hooking up with the Milwaukee metro guys would be a good first step.

Ideas? Thoughts?
