May is National Bike Month. While some states may be able to offer comfortable riding year-round, northernly states have a bit of a window for true riding weather. Here in Wisconsin the month of May has been designated as the true ‘start’ to the riding season. Temperatures are adequate, trails are dry, and the sun is, generally, out. To kick things off, we got up to Appleton this past week to start things up as soon as May started. As in 12:01 am May 1, 2015. We met up with a group of 30 some riders to welcome the National Bike Challenge. We met some great people and rode a fun route, all at a crazy hour of the day. Would we do it again? Yup. Should you come next year? Yes!
