Board Members: Laurie Shepherd, Alan Berger, Don Mollet and John Schimmels have been joined by Brady Koss. .

Attention All Bicyclists: New Riding Opportunity: There is now a mile long loop for a single track bike trail just south of Antigo (N1985 Dump Rd.) This is the site of the old landfill which has been capped. This effort was made possible through collaboration between the city and the Antigo Bike & Ski Club. The city greatly appreciates the support and vision of Josh Zalewski and all the time he spent flagging the trail and attending meetings.  Brady Koss did an excellent job assisting the trail crew with placing the initial loop in the fall of 2013. Here is the work crew after some trail maintenance on Oct.11, 2014SglTrkWork10-11-2014B
