Nature Valley

The other weekend I was in  Menomonie, WI when the Nature Valley Bicycle Festival was happening. It was the first year that they came to Menomonie, it was incredible! There were well over 200 men and woman that had already raced in St. Paul, Cannon Falls, and Minneapolis Uptown, before coming to Menomonie on Saturday. On Sunday they were finishing in Stillwater. The professional men’s race was 95 miles and the woman’s race was 76 miles.  There were amateur criterium races as well going on all afternoon. They were all awe inspiring events to watch, even though I came up with a rather extensive list of things I would rather do than sit on a bike seat for nearly four hours! It was cool to hear, feel and see 120 bikers whiz by you in a matter of seconds. I am a fan.
