Bicycle riders participate in Highground event
The weather forecast for Aug. 7 read something like this: showers, thunderstorms, cloudy and a wind speed of about 15 mph.
It wasn't an ideal day to be on a bicycle, to say the least.
About 22 bicyclist weren't deterred by the weather.
The group, which left from the New Richmond Armory at about 8 a.m. with a police escort, was pedaling approximately 170 miles to the Highground in Neillsville last weekend.
