Like most, I enjoy celebrating my birthday with fun activities and good company, which is why I like to host a group bike and hike.
I assembled a group of riders outside of Machinery Row and we headed out on the Capital City Trail to Lake Farm County Park. We rode two-abreast, chatting along the way perched upon all manner of bikes - Dutch, road, fat, mountain, hybrid, and vintage.
We easily filled the bike parking at Lake Farm before setting out on foot to Lake Waubesa and then a picnic table in the sun. Refreshments, gymnastics, and fun on the playground ensued.
Before heading back into town, Tube Tats (tattoos for your bike) were distributed and our bike gang, The Ladiezzzzzzzz, was founded. It was an eventful ride.
