Adventure cycling shows off the beauty of Wisconsin’s back roads

…Adventure cycling is a mix of road riding, touring and cyclocross (which, itself, is a mix between road riding and mountain biking). There is no “one bike” required for these rides. You don’t have to have an expensive carbon bike or require spendy suspension. Really, it can be whatever bike you have. Mountain bikes, fat bikes, cyclocross bikes, drop bars, flat bars, even singlespeeds.
And you can make rides like this into whatever challenge you want. Just a ride? Maybe try for a personal best? Make it through without walking? Or race against the other riders? No answer is wrong. It is all up to you.
This past weekend, I had the opportunity to participate in one such ride, a gravel grinder called the Dairy Roubaix at Wyalusing State Park, near Prairie du Chien…

Fear the beer?

(Photo: Brewers.com) No one hates bad baseball teams. Sure, people feel sorry for them, or they just ignore them. But you don’t read national sportswriters talking smack about the Royals. Players from opposing teams don’t pick fights with them, either.
But lately, the Brewers – currently the best team in baseball – are finding all sorts of new haters. Whether they’re ripping on Carlos Gomez’ swagger or presuming that Ryan Braun most obviously still juicing, the Crew is facing all sorts of new heat.
And that’s awesome…

First look: Potawatomi’s new (and still under-construction) hotel

…Despite the tarps and dust and unpainted walls and exposed plumbing, the hotel is already impressive due to the incredible amount of natural light and the views, which will undeniably rival as some of the city’s best.
When complete, the hotel will be 18 stories high – the superstitious will be happy to know there won’t be a floor 13 – with 341 rooms ranging in size and amenities. (Fun factoid: 415 soap dishes and 381 ice buckets are already on order…)
