In praise of Madison

Just back from the annual bike trip, where we had a fantastic time. Madison, Wisconsin lived up to its reputation as a bike-friendly city. Not only do they have an extensive network of bike paths and bike lanes, but even out on country roads the drivers are incredibly patient and respectful of cyclists.

Carolina Tailwinds remains our favorite company to travel with. Great people, great bikes, and they think of everything, so all we have to do is pedal and enjoy.

Already plotting our trip for next year. In the meantime, here's where we've been so far:

2016 Best of Madison, Carolina Tailwinds
