What do all these things have in common? Great racing culture, Trek, Saris, Pacific Cycle, Planet Bike, Tyrol Basin, scenic beauty, difficult bike courses, UW Madison campus, and the best bike trails in the country?
They are all found in and around Madison and all of them have helped contribute to Madison being selected as the host for the 2016 olympic bicycling events.
If Chicago wins its olympic bid, Madison and the surrounding area will host the road race and mountain courses for the olympics. The road race would start at UW Madison and the mountain course at Tyrol Basin.
Let's keep our fingers crossed for this great opportunity.
