UW Madison Police are on the Prowl---To Help Keep You Lighted on your Bicycle

WI law requires a white front light visible from 500 feet, and a rear red reflector or steady or flashing red visible from 500 feet.

UWPD is coordinating 2 initiatives for their annual Be Bright campaign and needs volunteers to install the light sets on bikes.  The initiatives will be Monday, October 13 and 20.  An officer will stop a biker that does not have appropriate bike lighting and while the officer educates and gets some basic information a volunteer installs the light set on the bike.  The location of the initiatives will be kept secret until the day of or the day before the event.  If you are interested in volunteering with this initiative please email Officer Kristin Radtke at keradtke@wisc.edu  She will be in touch with the final location on the night(s) you are able to volunteer.  Thanks for considering!

New Cyclocross and Mountain Bike Trails in Madison!

Want easy access to a CX skills trail in Madison? 

Some of you may know that Capitol Off-Road Pathfinders is building the first official mountain bike trail right here in Madison, at the confluence of the Cannonball, Cap City and Badger State bike paths. Seminole Trails will be a beginner/intermediate mtn bike path, and ideal for 'cross bikes. 

Ride this trail to improve your bike handling skills!

For those not riding Lake Geneva Cross, please consider helping out at CORP's first official trail workday: Sunday, September 14.

Meet at the Seminole Highway parking lot at 11am for coffee and doughnuts (just south of where Seminole crosses the Cap City Trail). 

Bring long pants, boots and gloves, water bottle. No prior experience needed. Stay and help for as long as you like.

The 3-mile-plus trail corridor is already cleared enough to walk and we will be removing tape, cleaning the tread of debris, and removing garbage from years of neglect.
