    Wisconsin Bucket list.

    Name a Wisconsin trail, you have not ridden, that you want to ride this year.

    For me, it is the Raven Trail.

    If the weather cooperates, I'll cross one off this weekend and ride The Underdown. And I'll also ride the new Roche this weekend as well. I've done Roche before, but only with the tornado damage and I ended up lost as hell.

    Also heading up to CAMBA for the first time this August for 4 days!

    Not exactly a "trail" per se, but the only thing I can think of is the Chequamegon Fat Tire Fest.

    I HAVE to do that one of these years

    I've been wanting to ride the Roche and the Underdown, and its been a few years since I've ridden Levis Trow. I've done the Fattire 40 mile 5 or 6 times, it is a must do.

    CAMBA area trails and generally northwest of the cottage (Tomahawk). It's been 15 - 20 years since I've biked in the area.

    Hmm, Levis Trow, anything in the CAMBA network, Blue Mound, umm? I've not been able to get up to any WI trails yet this year, and the probability of me getting to more than 1 or 2 different trails is very unlikely at this point, so any of the above would make me REALLY happy.

    I hit a lot of WI trails last summer. Hope to get back to most of them this year. In particular, I'd like to ride Nicolet-Roche now that the tornado damage area has been connected through.

    The Chequamegon course has no singletrack. The race starts out with 1,700 cyclists spinning down the streets of Hayward before hitting the dirt. Some have called it a road race on grass with some gravel fire roads mixed in. This race could also be considered cyclings version of running a marathon. The coarse is very hilly, the hills just keep coming, and about 30 miles in they seem to increase to the point where you will see riders unable to clip out of they"re pedals(due to cramps) and just fall over clutching they're legs . This race really challenges your fitness and with the amount of riders just has a special feeling to it. So to answer your question "how tough is it" it's very tough. I have raced all over the midwest for about 15 years and this race is a must do, even if you're not into racing.

    I'm hungry for anything super tight and technical. I'm sooooooo bored with all the wide open trails. I like trails that challenge me for more then just my fitness.

    I'd like Kettle, but I can't drive yet, and I don't own my own bike. Been using my dad's old Motiv Highridge which is in bad need of repair/grease (something to do tomorrow). Maybe I'll ride Kettle someday, but for now the 7 mile ride to Crystal Ridge is all I got. Can't wait to drive to some new trails.

    I'm lucky enough to live in La Crosse, so I get to ride the awesome HPT all the time. Hitting Raven in a couple weeks. Should be able to get in Standing Rocks that same long weekend.

    Knocked Levis off the list last week. I've planned a MTB vacation for the 19th-21st that will cover South Kettles, Blue Mound, and some of the trail around Madison. After that is done, I don't have many left in WI other than HPT. Living closer to MN now, so I'll be exploring a lot there. Need to hit Red Wing, Murphy, and whatever else is there (only ridden Lebanon so far)

    Add Underdown and Washburn Lake to your list for "super tight and technical" but know they are also fast and flowing in ways.
