Get Out and Explore the Bicycling Capital of America
As the home of the country’s first bike trail built on a converted rail bed, Sparta, Wisconsin has become affectionately known as the “Bicycling Capital of America.” To help you make the most of your visit, the Country Inn & Suites, Sparta lets you stay close to the beautiful outdoor setting of the Elroy-Sparta and La Crosse River bike trails. If you prefer to ride something other than a bike, Redrock Trail Rides lets you experience the area’s natural beauty on a horseback excursion. If you’re looking for something to do on a cold and rainy day, spend some time visiting the Deke Slayton Memorial Space & Bike Museum, which is nestled in Sparta’s town center.
