We are SPARTA --- Wisconsin

Apparently, Sparta, Wisconsin is the "Bicycling Capital of America". I never knew that. When I thought of doing this blog, this is the type of "Americana" shot that I thought I would be posting on a regular basis. Turns out, these are pretty boring shots, but I had to post one or two, just for show. Sparta, Wisconsin is up near La Crosse on the way to Minneapolis if you get off the main highway. Getting off of the main highway is exactly what I needed to do to survive all of this travel. So, now we all know that Sparta is the bicycling capital of the US. How do they get that title? Was it voted on? Just curious.
