45th Annual DAMOP Meeting
June 2-6, 2014 • Madison, Wisconsin
DAMOP 2014 Bike Ride
On the last day of the meeting, Friday June 6, local AMO physicists Jim Lawler and Thad Walker are organizing a bike ride for DAMOP attendees. Southern Wisconsin is a pioneer in rails-to-trails conversions, and access to about 70 miles of bicycle trails goes right past the DAMOP conference site. The trails have very gentle hills and have only the occasional road crossing as they travel through the Wisconsin countryside with its dairy farms, cheese factories, breweries, and ever plentiful bars.
Bicycle rentals are being arranged for DAMOP participants. We have posted more information at http://www-atoms.physics.wisc.edu/DAMOP%20Bicycle%20Excursion.pdf, and this information will be updated with more specifics as the meeting approaches. This will be an out-and-back ride, so the ride can be as short or long as you like, and people of all fitness levels will enjoy the ride. Those interested in a very strenuous ride can even ride the route for the proposed Chicago 2016 Olympics.
So consider staying a little longer this year and enjoy a great day of biking.
