Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

Have you heard of the Adventure Cycling Association? Headquartered in Montana, the association describes itself “as a nonprofit organization {whose} mission is to inspire and empower people to travel by bicycle.” This Saturday, instructors from the Adventure Cycling Association will kick off a 6-day Introduction to Road Touring course right here in West Bend. The course will show new bike tourists how to prepare for and execute a multi-day ride. The course will include camping, cooking, budgeting and other elements of successful touring. A second session will run June 21-26. Nationwide, there are just a few of these classes each year. We should feel honored that West Bend has been chosen as a host city. It says a lot about the quality of cycling in our area that people from other places want to come here to ride.
