Chips happen! This is one of the fundamental truths of life. I love this down-earth sense of humor us Wisconites have! No wonder they call us cheeseheads. Ha!

Mini Wisconsin Bicycle Tour

Wisconsin bicycle trip map. The bike route stretching from Minneapolis, just over the Mississippi River, through La Crosse, Madison and to Milwaukee.
A map of my Wisconsin bicycle trip. It was easy, fun and full of great food. It took a few weeks and amounts to only a thumbprint on the world map of my world bike ride.

This summer I did a mini bicycle trip from coast to coast in Wisconsin, which means from the Mississippi River to Lake Michigan. Well, mini may not be accurate, but everything compared to going around the world seems mini.

With more than 15,000 lakes, it’s an interesting fact that Wisconsin’s has more coastline than most states, including California. Wisconsin also has the largest bicycle industry, the first rails-to-trails conservation project and some of the nicest bike trails in the world, and I mean that literally. And lo and behold, I discovered another interesting fact: apparently, according to this sign pictured below, Kermit the Frog is an indigenous species of Wisconsin. Wow!

Watch my fun, fast-motion video of the trip.

Who knew that Kermit the Frog (Latin: Rana Kermit) is an indigenous species of Wisconsin. This photo and description of Kermit was taped onto a park sign.
