Madeline Island Ghost Ride

Back from camping and biking Madeline Island, the biggest island of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Lake Superior. Couldn't get anyone to go on the morning ride with me, so I ghost rode it. Here's a photo essay of the ride. All in all I got 64 miles in over the long holiday weekend. My butt is kinda sore. I'll try to caption some of the photos, but check out these links to get a real feel for the place.

Yikes! How'd he get in the picture














The fun starts here














Gotta love a place with bike lanes














Tom's Burned Down Cafe - Good place for a beer, but I wouldn't get it in a glass

BC-This would be a great place for the trikes too. I'll give you a ring when I've assimilated back to normal life again.

Coastkid-you're right-big,deep,clear and cold. Made for a chilly ride in the morning, but once you get a good sweat going, you don't notice the temp. Take care
