In a city with many miles of designated bike routes, this ride leaves from a park that overlooks the picturesque Sugar River valley. The cruise travels counterclockwise to the southwest, utilizing one of the city’s commuter bike routes into the dale. After crossing Military Ridge State Trail, you soon approach a town known as the “Troll Capital of the World.” An option is available in this Norwegian settlement for those who prefer to ride the crushed limestone trail back. Otherwise the cruise turns southeast down the valley floor, where you will soon be in a village named for George Washington’s home. You then circle back to the northeast and wind your way up past Sugar Ridge on your way to a village once named Corners. Here, at the crossroads of several roadways, the route safely maneuvers its way through town and then veers off to the east. Turning north, the grade of the road gradually ascends on another bike-designated roadway back into Madison.
