Friends of The Badger Trail

Badger State Trail is a "Rails to Trails" trail extending from Madison, WI to the Illinois state line intended for bicycles and hikers during warm months and snowmobiles and limited ATV use during the winter. With one end of the trail located in Madison, a tunnel (considered to be the darkest trail tunnel in Wisconsin), and the distinction of being the only inter-state trail in Wisconsin, the Badger State Trail is becoming the most popular trail in the state. The trail is the old Illinois Central Railroad corridor. The Badger Trail connects to the Southwest Path, the Military Ridge State Trail and the Capitol City Trail in Madison. The trail is blacktopped from Madison to Purcell Road (North of Belleville). From Purcell Road to the Illinois state line limestone screenings provide a hard smooth surface for your biking and hiking enjoyment. The highlight of the trail is the restored 1200-foot long Stewart Railroad Tunnel that was finished in 1887 and is located south of Belleville. Because of a slight bend in the tunnel, you gaze into total darkness. We recommend that you bring a bright flashlight. This tunnel may not be the longest trail tunnel in Wisconsin, but is considered by many to be the darkest in Wisconsin. From the tunnel, the trail continues south to Monticello where it crosses the Sugar River State Trail. From Monticello the trail continues to Monroe and then on into Illinois. At the Wisconsin state line it connects to the Jane Addams Trail which brings you to Orangeville and Freeport, IL. The Jane Addams Trail is part of the Grand Illinois Trail System. Communities along the trail all welcome trail users. May we suggest you go to the links for the communities at the top of this page to better plan your visit. If you are part of a group, may we suggest you reserve a shelter in the community you are starting and/or ending. Green County is famous for its many cheese factories and two breweries, so plan on bringing part of Green County home with you. For more information visit FriendsOfBadgerStateTrail.org
 

Wisconsin Historical Press Society

On rails-to-trails bike paths, city streets, and winding country roads, the bicycle seems ubiquitous in the Badger State. Yet there's a complex and fascinating history behind the popularity of biking in Wisconsin--one that until now has never been told in depth. Meticulously researched through periodicals and newspapers, “Wheel Fever” traces the story of Wisconsin's first "bicycling boom," from the velocipede craze of 1869 through the "wheel fever" of the 1890s. From the start it has been defined by a rich and often impassioned debate over who should be allowed to ride, where they could ride, and even what they could wear. Many early riders embraced the bicycle as a solution to the age-old problem of how to get from here to there quickly and easily. Yet for every supporter of the "poor man"s horse, there were others who wanted to keep the rights and privileges of riding to an elite set. Women, the working class, and people of color were often left behind as middle- and upper-class white men benefited from the "masculine" sport and all-male clubs and racing events began to shape the scene. Even as bikes became more affordable and accessible, a culture defined by inequality helped create bicycling in its own image. "Wheel Fever" is about the origins of bicycling in Wisconsin and why those origins still matter, but it is also about our continuing fascination with all things bicycle. From "boneshakers" to highwheels, standard models to racing bikes, tandems to tricycles, the book is lushly illustrated with never-before-seen images of early cycling and the people who rode them: bloomer girls, bicycle jockeys, young urbanites, and unionized workers. Laying the foundations for a much-beloved sport, "Wheel Fever" challenges us to imagine anew the democratic possibilities that animated cycling's early debates. Nicholas J. Hoffman is curator at the History Museum at the Castle in Appleton, Wisconsin, and has written articles for the Wisconsin Magazine of History. His lifelong interest in Midwest history led to a master’s in history from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee. A native of Hillsboro, Wisconsin, and an avid cyclist, he enjoys exploring the state’s landscape on two wheels. Wheel Fever: How Wisconsin Became a Great Bicycling State By Jesse J.
