    Huge Favor: Green Bay @ 4/17 Monday 4:00, Looking to MTB

    I will be flying in to Austin-Straubel Field at 2:10pm for a work trip. However, I'll be available (I assume at 4:00) for a mtb ride. From what I can see (MTB Project), Bairds Creek is a quick in-town loop that's worth riding and would likely fit my schedule (unless you suggest otherwise).

    I plan on bringing some clothes, a helmet, shoes, and pedals. All I'm missing is a bike. I'm ready to rent a bike for the evening but I won't have the rental car. So, I'm stuck.

    1) Is there a shop on/near a trial in Green Bay?
    2) (The huge favor) Can I borrow a bike from one of you and ride with you Monday evening? Anything in large works for me.

    I understand that I am asking a huge favor. Feel absolutely free to call me crazy or tell me 'no'. If it's too wet/muddy, I'll leave everything at home. I don't want to hurt anyone's trails. But, I'm not sure If I'll ever be out in WI again and my love of MTB held a gun to my head and forced me to write this message.

    Overall: Let me ride your bike, show me your trail, and let me buy you dinner and a bunch of beer on Monday @ 4.

    Check out Broken Spoke Bike Studio. It is a great shop and within a short ride to Baird's Creek.

    I was able to rent a 509 from Broken Spoke. That bike was much lighter and snappier accelerating than I expected. Getting to the trail head was fast and easy. The trail was well signed and seemingly difficult to get lost. I had a blast! I kept riding in the direction that seemed more fun which often were signed with small orange arrow signs. Sweeping single track through trees next to the creek was a good time and a few small climbs, bridges, and features made the twisty fun pretty action-packed for a shorter ride. Though there's not a single rock to be found, there's plenty of roots to help motivate momentum. Bairds Creek has a little of everything and certainly seems like a gem to have in town. I may be heading back out there a couple times later this year. If so, I plan on doing the same rental/trail again but maybe two loops with some of the side trails. I feel like a guide could help with line choice.

    Thanks for the advice! You guys rock!
