2009 - Big River Trail: We had enjoyed riding the Mississippi River with Santana so much (2007) that we decided to ride some of the northern part of the river, just the two of us. We flew with Rosie (2001 Co-Motion Speedster CoPilot) into Minneapolis, left our luggage at a B&B where we stayed the first night, loaded Rosie with panniers, and took off downriver along the Big River Trail on the Wisconsin side of the river. This mostly follows Hwy 35. After Prairie du Chien we turned inland and rode to Madison where we visited family, riding only 4 days. Then a rental car back to Minneapolis reunited us with our bags for the flight home. In this photo we are at the terminus of the Military Ridge Trail in Verona, Wisconsin. After this trip we resolved to go back someday to ride the remainder of the river.
