Madison…Bicycle City

   Unusually warm spring weather here in south-central Wisconsin has allowed bicycling enthusiasts to hit the trails early.  Our guests this week at the Speckled Hen Inn Bed and Breakfast rented bicycles from Machinery Row Bikes in Madison and had a great time exploring the city by bike.  They were fitted with Trek 7200 hybrid bikes.  Bike rental is only $20/ day or $60/ week and that includes bike lock and helmet too.  Madison has miles of great bike paths and also is close to a couple of the state bike trails.  So, bring your own bike or rent one here.  Have fun exploring and then return to the Inn to soak those muscles in one of jetted tubs.
