    What else is there to do in a blue collar factory town of a little over 100,000?

    Ride or walk across Lake Winnebago on bare ice. lol Over 500 signed up for the bike ride on Saturday and there could be up to 800 walkers. Free hot dogs, courtesy of Festival Foods and Manderfield's Bakery and live music and dance under a heated tent at Vinland's Still & Grill in the evening. But you really need a microscope to find any snow around here. It's going to be a very adventurous 18 mile ride round trip or 9 mile walk one way across the lake. But, it is a totally different story about 2 hours north where it is snow heaven and hundreds of miles of groomed smooth snowmobile trails.

    This is what the surface of the lake is like this year. But it is thick (15-18 inches and strong enough to support trucks.) Theda Care Medical Center better have extra staff on hand Saturday for injuries due to falling on ice. lol

    "bike ride" ?

    How does one ride a bike across an ice sheet? Tire chains?

    Fatboys with studs. Other years when we had snow, some rode the fat boys, but others rode just regular mountain bikes across the lake. There are several big cracks, on the ice, but they always build bridges over the cracks. They only need 12-14 inches to plow the rode safely. The road makes it convenient for fisherman to get to their heated ice houses for the annual sturgeon spearing season in February. But we have no snow to plow this year. It's been a really dry winter. I have never seen a winter in Wisconsin with no snow like this.
