Welcome to the "2012 Madison Memories" website. This is where you'll find all the details needed to participate in this year's remarkable 2 wheeled adventure and tour of Madison, WI, August 19- 26.
Here's why you'll love this Madison, adventure:
As the state capital and home to the University of Wisconsin, Madison is rich in culture, entertainment
and excellent locally brewed beer. Here's a food pairing that's a Badger State favorite... Chase that big, squeaky hunk of fried cheese curd with a quart of New Glarus Fat Squirrel beer on tap. It's only available in Wisconsin.
Your tour will headquarter at the beautiful, amenity packed Crowne Plaza Hotel.
Cycling & hiking in southern Wisconsin allows you to experience some unique glaciated topography. Nearly everywhere in Wisconsin, the land is dotted with glacial remnants from the last Ice Age such as lakes, elongated hills known as drumlins, ridges called moraines and ice age eskers or gravel ridges formed by glacial streams.
And if you need more reasons to join us this year, we've included a bicycle ride to, lunch at, and a tour of the Trek Bicycle Factory. Yep. They're still making bikes one-at - a-time, by hand in Waterloo. You'll witness the birth of a bicycle frame and get the bragging rights by joining us on this Madison memory maker: August 19-26.

That's why you choose when and where to spend your time and money. As always, Savvy Cycling Tours remains profit free. Our Raison d'être (reason for being) is to raise money for worthy charities. This year, each participant is asked to donate $50 to ( PCF.org ) the Prostate Cancer Foundation. I hope that you will join us this summer in Madison. It's a wonderful town for whatever you choose to do.
