Spring classics, Wisconsin style

April 17th, 2013  |  Tags:

I often joke that Cross Plains, WI could host a Spring classic if they would just build a velodrome at the end of Church Street, but I suppose potholes and cobblestones aren’t exactly interchangeable. The weather in Madison is gradually moderating and — while it’s still too wet for mountain biking — we’ve had about a month of great totally adequate road riding weather now. Here’s a time-compressed video of a quick ride out to Cross Plains from last weekend; watch for the cobbled-classics infrastructure aesthetic from around 3:40–3:55:
