Sharon, a quaint town a mile north of the Wisconsin-Illinois border, is actually something of a bicycling mecca. Each summer Sharon hosts the Roun'da Manure Bike ride, at one time touted by Bicycling Magazine as one of the ten best bike rides in the country. Besides the charms of Sharon, the ride appeals to families and beginning riders for its relatively gentle terrain and for the coupons you get to use at the many ice-cream shops in the area. This ride includes a bit of Roun'da Manure route, as well as a connection to Lake Geneva. Things to see: Towns of Fontana, Sharon, Darien, and Walworth; Lake Geneva; scenic countryside.

Nice ride. One turn outside Fontana turns left on Town Hall Road. The Route guide calls it Town Line Road but it is Town Hall. Had to go a bit out of the way before realizing. Have fun. Anna
