Day 33: 76 miles from La Crosse, WI → Mauston, WI

Today’s ride included a 20-mile segment on a bike path said to be the first rails-to-trails path in the country. It was good packed clay for most (though not all) of its length. The path also included two old railroad tunnels about 1 and 0.5 miles long.

At the end of the ride, Scott, some other friends, and I went to dinner at the summer home of one of the riders, Jim, which was very nice. I might have eaten too much.
