The Lake Loop

If you live, or have lived, in Madison, WI and you ride bikes you have ridden the Monona Lake Loop. It is a designated cycling route (marked with actual signs) that takes you on streets in lakeside neighborhoods and on paved bike paths all along Lake Monona. It is a little over 13 miles, with plenty of great stops and scenic views along the way. Last Thursday, for our weekly shop ride, we slowly meandered around the lake and it was one of my favorite rides to date!  

There is something special about getting a group of friends, new and old, together for an evening Lake Loop - when the weather is warm and the fiery sunset makes the whole city glow a mesmerizing orange. 


Here is a map of our route!
