Plan on extra travel time to Door County this spring and summer, but take time to enjoy downtown Sturgeon Bay.  The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is rehabilitating the Bayview Bridge (Highway 42/57) in Sturgeon Bay, Door County This work is being done to extend the life of the bridge. The Bayview Bridge was opened in 1978. The bridge has been closed to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic since March 5, 2013.   During this time, traffic will be detoured through Sturgeon Bay.

 The  Century Bike Ride 2010 was recently held in  Door County and a couple of very good musician friends of mine from Madison participated, as they have for several years.  Adam Michie of  Bluetrain and Bonobo Secret Handshake and Mark Loder of The Relics are pictured in the first picture.   There were some changes this year, primarily location.  The Fairgrounds in Sturgeon Bay is the new locale which affords more people the opportunity  to participate due to the ability to overcome space limitations.     There are two excellent aspects of this race.  The local scenery all along the way is one of them, but the other part is the flexibility to accommodate all abilities.  You can do the Century (100 miles) or the half century (I remember that birthday!), or anything in between.  This mea...
