Lake Geneva....

Lake Geneva gets better all the time.
My first summer at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin was in 1969. I was at Camp Northwestern when Neil Armstrong put his foot down on the moon that hot July 21st.

There's a ton of stuff that I've enjoyed about Lake Geneva for years... way to much to even list...Sailing School, Water Skiing, Snow Skiing at Majestic, Chucks, taking the boat full of family and freinds to resteraunts like the old Shore Club and Bay Shore. Holidays, Weekends, Weekdays, George the Cop, Neighbors in Indian Hills, Grilling on the Webber...all kinds of stuff.

After I got into cycling in the last few years I also realized that my family lived in one of the most fantastic cycling areas I've every experianced all this time. My friend David turned me on to a great Ride Book put together by RRB Cycles in Lake Geneva. I'd link you to their website if they had one.

Its got 21 area rides with cue sheets and maps. Last week I did a different loop every day while I was there to visit my Mom and Dad. I didn't see any other Track bikes on the road but I had a great time on some beautiful blacktop like this tree lined stretch of Bailey Road near Williams Bay.

My Dad said I needed to go to Freds Worlds Best Burger in Burlington.

The sign says "Freds Worlds Best Burger". The burger was damn good. Padre and I had ours in the classic old style with mustard, pickle and raw onion.

It was a damn good burger but I have to admit I liked their fresh homemade potato chips even more.

they were cut on some type of spiral cutter and came out hot hot hot. IMHO these are the Worlds Best Potato Chips!

I always look forward to getting back to 'the lake'
