Winter is Here. Time to Ride.

The following is plagerized from the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin December e-mail newsletter:

'Tis the season of Bike Winter, community building events to uplift the spirit and provide encouragement to keep on riding! The idea is simple - with the proper gear, a little determination, and some motivation from comrades, bicycles can be ridden throughout the year. To aid in this effort, the BFW has helped to foster and promote some of the notorious, and now legendary, Milwaukee Bike Winter events and over the years, has added some of our own events to the mix as well. Here are some of the upcoming events in Madison and Milwaukee:
