Centrally located in the Madison Area Region Fitchburg is a cycling hub for the full gamut of biking enthusiasts. Designated a Silver Level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists, Fitchburg features two mountain bike trails and five recreational rides, three of which are state trails. These trails are some of Wisconsin's finest and can lead you on an adventure to small towns like Mount Horeb or urban centers like Milwaukee or Chicago. Biking in Fitchburg Trail Details.

The roads winding through Fitchburg to other Wisconsin destinations, like Paoli or New Glarus are popular for everyone from weekend travelers to Ironmen and women in training.

Cyclists from around the country head to Fitchburg for weekend adventures, staying in one of the city’s hotels conveniently located next to several bike trails.

While you’re on two wheels in Fitchburg, veer off the trails to visit the eateries and local events, like the Fitchburg Farmers Market and Concerts at McKee, all easily accessible by well-kept paths and bike lanes.

You can check out the Dawley Bike Hub, a rest stop with a repair station, parking, restrooms, shelter and water and catch three state trails and three paths from here.

Mountain bikes are a fun way to exercise and connect with nature and you don't even need to be in the mountains to become a avid mountain bike cyclist. Wisconsin has some great courses and Fitchburg is home to two of them! Mountain Biking in the 'Burg.
