From the Author

“Re-riding the routes for this second edition was like visiting an old friend. I wondered why I had waited so long to do it. I found some major changes, like the bypasses around Lake Geneva and La Crescent. There were nice surprises of new pavement and a few ‘oh, dears’ at crumbling country roads—all part of the adventure of motorcycling. I’ve ridden in a lot of beautiful places, and southern Wisconsin is still one of the best. It draws me back with its winding roads, rural landscape, and friendly people.”—Barbara Barber

Editorial Reviews

“Sunday Rides on Two Wheels is a delightful, informative, and important biking book. Barbara Barber covers the roadways, byways, small back roads, and large highways in a most entertaining manner. Her maps, guidelines, and directions are crystal clear. If you ride in Wisconsin or surrounding neighborhoods, you will find her road coverage invaluable. Don’t leave home on your bike without it.”—Barbara Joans, author of Bike Lust: Harleys, Women, and American Society
