Did you know that bicycling is the most efficient form of transportation known to humankind!
Sheboygan County maintains a plethora of trail and other nonmotorized facilities (i.e. bike lanes, sidewalks, etc.). In fact, there are over 39 miles of paved off-road multi-use trail facilities located throughout the County, all of which will eventually be part of the NOMO Network. The Sheboygan County Planning & Conservation Department is responsible for fully maintaining the Interurban Trail, Old Plank Road Trail, and has some maintenance responsibilities associated with the The Shoreland 400 Rail Trail. In the near future, the Department will also have responsibility over one additional trail in the City of Sheboygan that is being built through the Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program Grant (NOMO). This facility will run directly adjacent to Taylor Drive on the east side of the roadway. The Taylor Drive trail is expected to begin in late 2015 and be completed in 2016.
If you are into mountain biking, Sheboygan County is home to some great trails as well. Though none are maintained by Sheboygan County, you will find great rides at Evergreen/Quarry Parks Mountain Bike Trails in the heart of the City of Sheboygan as well as at the Kettle Moraine State Forest. In fact, one of the, if not the, largest Wisconsin Off-Road Racing Series (WORS) is held at Evergreen/Quarry Park each year.
Enjoy your use! We are glad to have you!
“I read a study that measured the efficiency of locomotion for various species on the planet. The condor used the least energy to move a kilometer. Humans came in with a rather unimpressive showing about a third of the way down the list. That didn't look so good, but then someone at Scientific American had the insight to test the efficiency of locomotion for a man on a bicycle and a man on a bicycle blew the condor away.”
