Bicycling Capital of America
Sparta is known as the Bicycling Capital of America. Located in the center of 101 miles of state trails, Sparta is THE best place to stay when you ride the world-famous Elroy-Sparta trail. With three rock tunnels, the Trail is known as a must for anyone on two wheels! Sparta offers the vacationer so much to do and see that 1-day just isn’t enough! The Elroy-Sparta State Bike Trail is the property of the State of Wisconsin and is part of its State Trails System. The La Crosse River State Trail was developed from the abandoned Chicago Northwestern Railroad between Sparta and La Crosse.
