Biking the Lake Superior Ice Caves
>-by Dave Schlabowske, Deputy Director, Wisconsin Bike Fed
Since I published this blog post about bicycling on frozen Lake Superior shoreline to see the ice caves I have received a bunch of requests for more details on how to get there.
This post should help direct people, but remember to check the ice for yourself before you pedal off the shore. Ice conditions change quickly and what was safe one day may not be safe the next.
Also remember it remains illegal to ride to the mainland caves off Meyers Beach or anywhere in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. You will need to walk or ski to view those, but there are other spectacular caves to explore by bike along the shore of Madeline Island and Chequamegon Bay.
