Why We Love It

Madison, the capital of Wisconsin, is a bike-friendly and creative city with a small town feel. Located between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona, it is known for the University of Wisconsin badgers, craft beer, bratwursts, a sinking Statue of Liberty during the winter months, the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile, those pink plastic flamingos, and, of course, cheese.
