Platteville - TRAIL

Platteville - Trail, Platteville, Wisconsin

Everone has there favorites, but I have not found any others in Wisconsin close to this. Do not be afraid to cross water, you will cross a creek 25-30' accross at least twice, twisting off camber climbs, good downhills, and a climb that you will be in the saddle for at least 10 min's!!! The guys that bought this farm turned it into a mounain bike paradise. Contact the bike shop in Platteville for better directions, the club, for hard cores, rides every tuesday night even in snow if not too heavy. They are listed in silent sports, and have a race the last weekend in sept.

good down home hard climbs...go there and beat up on the locals yuppies that think they're hard core. bring your knobby tires not those stupid slicks you'll be able to rage thru all the corners way faster...

these trails are hard core mtb trails, not some wussy path riders trail, but some pertty knarly single track. at a mile away from this hard core trail series, i wouldent move for the life of me. the anual race in sept. is the best arround. if you like major fun rides then contact me for some direcitons and you'll be on your way to biking heaven! and if you think that you cant make it, then well your a path rider, huh? well i think they are some wild trails that you should try! but im only 16 and you probably think that im just baragging up a storm, but they are really great! and these are the trails that really got me inspired to ride more than just to town and back

The trails are on private property and are only open to club members due to liability concerns. The club sponsors group rides one night a week for most of the year including night rides. In order to ride the trails, you must be a club member and sign a waiver form. The local club and the Hirsch family sponsor an annual race called "The Block House Roll" in late september to early October. Its a must do for riders looking for a full weekend of fun. Contact the local bike shop for details or go to the club web site @http://www.freeflightbikes.com/bhr/home.htm

Don't know who "Jess" is referring to as the local "Yuppies" that he/she plans to beat up on but I am sure I was never passed by him/her in a climb or descent. Perhaps "Jess" is referring to those of us who prefer to purchase new equipment regularly. This is not a forum for jealousy which seems to be the root in most people calling others "Yuppies".

There is varying terrain for beginners and experts. Good climbs. Cassie's climb takes some skill to make to the top without dabbing a foot.
"Never been done" and "Timmy Screamer" are both good, rocky climbs. You have to be aware of your position on the bike on "Timmy Screamer" or you can lose traction on the loose rocks.

Customer Service

Follow the locals around the trails and you will have a good ride. Some nights there are "retro" rides that go the opposite direction to throw some variety into the rides.
