Hi, thanks for the response and completely agree.I don't currently live in Madison, but did spend a couple of years there for grad school. There is a very active cycling community and is a "bike-friendly" city. Amazing place, consistently ranks among the top places to live in the US. I miss Madison a lot. I'm sure others will chime in on the current situation as far as clubs and group rides go.
Thanks for the tip... will check out BBC!
