Saturday marked the final completion of the Badger State Trail. This trail stretches from Fitchburg to Freeport Illinois traveling through or near the towns of Paoli, Belleville, Monticello, and Monroe.
The total distance is about 40 miles. The trail connects with Capital City trail, Military Ridge, Sugar River, and the future Cannonball trail.
I was on hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony and speeches. About 50 or so bikers were present for the ribbon cutting and a nice ride along the new section. According to the speeches, the trail's success was due to Representive Spencer Black, the Wisconsin DNR, Fitchburg Alder Steve Arnold, the Mayor, and State Senator Risser whom one of the speakers joked began working on this trail just after Wisconsin was granted Statehood.
