Lake2lakes Ride — Salem, WI (CACTUS Ride)

August 3 @ 9:00 am

Join us for another “CACTUS” (COWs and CATs Tandeming in Unison with Style) ride. CACTUS rides bring together members of the Wisconsin tandem club (the COWS) and the Chicago tandem club (the CATS). Thanks to Greg Browning of CATS for developing the acronym and the routes! As always, you should be a member of COWs or CATs to participate in the joint rides. If you’re looking to join the COWs, you can do so here.

The ride visits four lakes in SE Wisconsin. Approximately 1/3 of the route goes through lakeside neighborhoods and 2/3 of the route is on country roads connecting the lakes. Most of the country roads are low-traffic, but there are a few stretches with moderate traffic. The route is a mix of hills and flat sections. There are a few short steep grades. The 45-mile route visits all four lakes, while the 29 mile option cuts out Bohner Lake. The ride begins at Silver Lake Park, visits Silver Lake, Twin Lakes, Powers Lake, and Bohner Lake before returning to Twin Lakes for lunch at Wild Child’s Restaurant and ice cream at Tom’s Straw Hat. We then ride the final seven miles back to the cars at Silver Lake.
