The Wisconsin Town That’s A Nationally Recognized Bicycling Paradise

Fitchburg is a town of about 25,000 people just south of Madison. A suburb of our state’s capital, this community has put in massive efforts in recent years to make their town bike-friendly. A popular choice for families to live in the Fitchburg area, they’ve worked with the League of American Bicyclists to create a number of safe, convenient biking locations throughout their city, earning them the designation as a Silver Level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists. More than just bike lanes, the city of Fitchburg has gone all in on making their town a destination.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
