Irish Heritage Bicycle Tour
Perhaps the green, rolling hills of southeastern Wisconsin reminded them of Ireland. Whatever, some of the million or more Irish who came to North America in the mid-nineteenth century settled here. While most pioneer farmsteads have gone back to nature, lovely St. Michaels Church with its graveyard of Celtic crosses testifies to lives spent cultivating these rocky soils. Keep an eye out along Mink Creek Road for the small stone memorial with a Gaelic inscription dedicated to an Irish pioneer. The character of the land is a legacy of the last continental glacier. At the Henry S. Reuss Ice Age Interpretative Center you can learn about the force of its massive ice sheets. The terrain you ride teaches the same lesson. Stop at the Parnell Observation Tower for a great view of beautiful Parnell Esker, a snake-like ridge laid down by a river flowing inside the ice sheet. St. Patrick would have been impressed.
