During the warmer months residents of Door County are able to take advantage of the many bike trails and back roads that are set against a beautiful backdrop, but the winter provides a bit of an challenge for those looking to stay active or train for upcoming races and rides.

John Zacek of Sister Bay, however, has found a way around this obstacle. He heads to Nor Door Sport & Cyclery’s Studio three to five times a week from November through March to stay fit with their power-based indoor cycling classes.

Laura Goetzke caught up with Zacek to see how his off-season training went and what his plans are for the cycling season ahead…including finishing a cross-country bike adventure.

Loved the ride! Route was beautiful and very well marked. Rest stops were plentiful and had plenty of food and drink. Loved the ice cold beer and delicious food at the end. I’ll definitely be back!

This year was the third annual excursion for myself and some friends. The ride and beer festival are becoming a tradition for us. Always a great weekend. Thanks, and keep up the good work!
