It was the most grueling fun many of these avid cyclists have seen in awhile. After bouts of heat, rain, and insects in the teeth, Milwaukee’s famous 24-hour marathon race came to a close Saturday evening. ThirdCoast Digest was there for photos, video (watch this site Tuesday for the latest “What’s Up, Milwaukee?”), and even one intrepid Managing Editor who rode in the tandem category and medaled in the event. Congrats, Erin!
