Root River Trail. the trail is on an old railroad right-of-way.
This town, about 50 miles SW of La Crosse, was a hub of bicycle activities, The trail is paved with asphalt, a welcome break from the crushed stone I had been riding in the area. As you can see in today's photo, even the bridge decking is paved.
Rode a little over 2 1/2 miles. Facing a hill I would need to descend (and climb back!) I turned back to town. Also, I knew i had a little climb as the trail comes into town, my legs were almost toast from the rides on the trip. I have been riding every-other day. Had a burger and fries at the little diner in Lanesboro.
Back to La Crosse, rested and soon time for dinner. It was my day for a bacon cheeseburger and craft beer. Headed downtown to The Old Crow. Had the local Pearl Street Brewery "Oktoberfest" beer. Was a nice compliment to the burger. Stuffed, did not any ice cream to top off the night.
