As you may know, Bike the Barns is a recreational ride that rolls at your own pace through our scenic farm country.  In large group rides, common sense and common courtesy will go a long, long way toward everybody enjoying a safe, satisfying, stupendous day! This year’s routes of 63 and 26 miles are of typical Wisconsin typography, a few hills, some wetlands, dairy farms, a lot of corn, and our diverse vegetable farms.  No time like the present to start getting out and trying some longer rides, 10-20 miles for you Radish riders and 30 or 40 miles for those Rutabaga renegades.
