The world’s largest bike – an old-fashioned high wheeler formed out of fiberglass – welcomes visitors to Sparta, known as the “Bicycling Capital of America.” Located in the scenic Driftless Area of Wisconsin, Sparta offers access to over 100 miles of multi-use trails including the Elroy-Sparta State Trail, the first rails-to-trails bicycle route in the country. Paddle down the La Crosse River or soak up some history at one of the museums in town and explore Sparta together with your favorite people.
