"I get what you mean, although the Elroy-Sparta Trail is a bad example of boring, mainly because of the 3 railroad tunnels.  But the rest of the 100 miles on the "Bike 4 Trails" across mid-Wisconsin is a bit dull. But on a multi-day…"

"It was a nice park after they closed Miegs field then the park district had a great idea to make it better by re doing it and putting a lagoon in the middle then party tents and Urban camping which essentially turns public space private."

"Yeah, that eastern part of the trail has had issues all along, but last year it was still passable and you could easily ride around the barriers. Now you can't ride it, unless you have serious off-road skills, and you have to lift your bike…"
