Sonia Dubielzig and Ron Stawicki, two local bicyclists and bloggers, have organized Bike To Work Day events in downtown Waukesha this Friday. Sonia and Ron both blog over at the new Bike Waukesha and Ron has his own great blog, Ronsa, which documents rides and post ride meals at Waukesha restaurants. According to the Freeman the events on Friday include free coffee and food from Cafe de Arts from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. with goodie bags and available mechanics from Cyclesmith. After work from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., there will be raffles and socializing time at Cafe de Arts. While you are downtown be sure to check out the Friday Night Live stages downtown.
Some of you may not venture down to the far West End
(of Main Street) as much as other parts of downtown but if you don’t you are missing out, especially this weekend. That that area is starting to see even more reinvestment from recent projects like the Maple & Main building, which houses Katydids
and two incredible (and available) condos that I was able to finally see last weekend, to the recent expansion of Magellan’s (M2) which is serving pizza some are calling some of the best in Waukesha
. Well you can add two more businesses at the West End to the mix.

Sara over at the awesome blog “Food, Fun and Life in Waukesha” recaps a week of eating in Waukesha with mini-reviews of Spirzzo, M2 (Magellan’s), Generations, and El Ranchito.
Her blog is a great chronicle of her enjoyment of all things Waukesha. Maybe we can coax her into posting here too.
Speaking of Waukesha Bloggers, the somewhat strange, yet always interesting, Sewer Racoon News also paid a visit to the Farmers’ Market last weekend.
