Cap City Trail Repaving

On the Madison Bikes Facebook group, the question comes up again and again: How is the repaving of the Cap City Trail coming along? According to the official timeline, the project should be done around August 20. At the moment, it looks like the old pavement had been removed, but nothing is paved yet.

Crazylegs Plaza

The reconstruction of Crazylegs Plaza is coming along nicely. The bike path is open (but not the connection to Oakland Ave). A bunch of bike racks are on site, ready to be installed.

Mountain Bike Demo at Pleasant View Golf Course. The best way to find the bike that’s right for you is to spend time riding a few different models. Join Trek at Quarry Ridge to test ride a variety of all-new Trek mountain bike models!
All you need to bring is a helmet, an ID, and your own pedals if you prefer something other than standard flats. Expert technicians will be onsite to help with fit and to answer questions.

Family Bike Camping The ride from The Cargo Bike Shop to Brigham County Park is approximately 30 miles. We will spend the majority of our ride on the Military Ridge State Trail (trail passes required, can be purchased at The Cargo Bike Shop). The path is paved asphalt to start, transitioning to crushed limestone in Verona. Terrain is slightly uphill all the way to the park (approx 750ft elevation gain), but very manageable. You can ride with the group, or use our queue sheet and ride at your own pace and/or your own schedule.
