RHINELANDER - Don't put away your road bike for the winter just yet.

Mel's Trading Post owner Mitch Mode says fall is the best time to take a bike out to see the fall foliage.

He is currently offering bike sales. However, if you don't want to go long-term, you can always rent a bike.


 "Bike rentals start at $20 a day with multiple days available. We are willing to work with people and get them out there on a bike," said Mode.

You can rent a bike year-round from Mel's. The business starts renting out fat-tire bikes when it starts to snow.

" In small towns like we live in, the outcomes can be three votes, ten votes, 15 votes," Durchslag said.

As a board member for the local League of Women Voters, she feels it's her mission to help educate people about voting.
