Bicycle Touring In Wisconsin
Recently, the owner of Earth Rider Cycling and Hotel (Sharon Kaminecki) was recognized for her contributions to tourism, cycling and economic development in Green County, Wisconsin. In 2004, Sharon retired from an IT job in Chicago, bought a 130+ yr old structure in the downtown historic district of Brodhead, Wisconsin, renovated the building and opened it a year later as Earth Riders. A combination of a bike shop on the ground floor and a bed & breakfast above, the business is an outgrowth of the popularity of the Sugar River Rail Trail just steps away.
Later this week, I'll be writing more about Earth Riders, the Sugar River Trail and a do it yourself B&B to B&B bike tour known as the Tour of Green County.
