City featured in bike-centric episode of tourism show | Arts & Culture
Fitchburg will be featured in an upcoming episode of a tourism show focused on bikes.
Discover Wisconsin's "America’s Bicycleland" is scheduled to premiere June 1 across the upper Great Lakes region, including Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Northern Illinois and Upper Michigan.
The city is celebrating with a sneak-peek episode-premiere party Thursday from 5-7 p.m. at
Veranda Restaurant & Wine Bar.
The city’s dedication to being bike-friendly is what caught the eye of a program producer, who said the city distinguished itself because it is "ideal for bikers who crave diversity."
In a news release, the City of Fitchburg said the Discover Wisconsin crew attended the Fitchburg Fast and Furious, which takes competitors on a race through the area’s most picturesque scenery.
The show airs statewide on Fox Sports North Saturday mornings at 10 a.m. For more on this and other episodes or the broadcast schedule in other areas please visit www.discoverwisconsin.com.
