Governer's Trail Council
Day two of the Wisconsin Summit was spent in the Capitol itself. Many of the constituents proceeded to speak to their representatives, I however spent most of the day at the Governer's Trails Council. This is an advisory council made up of representatives of trail uses state wide. So there are people sitting on this council that represent Ski trails, bike trails, ATV trails, Horse trails, trails for those with disabilities, motorcycles etc. I sat through several presentations and I learned a ton about how Wisconsin thinks about trail usage. I was also able to meet the WI secretary of the DNR, Matt Frank. It was cool to see that of the people that attended the council meeting, nearly all were mountain bike advocates.
