The website www.silentsports.net is just what it sounds like — it focuses on bicycling, running, paddlesports, multisports (triathlons, duathlons, biathlons and adventure races), cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, inline skating and other nonmotorized aerobic activities in the Upper Midwest.
According to the website, Silent Sports was also founded to report on Midwest events like the American Birkebeiner (North America’s largest cross country ski race) and the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival (the nation’s largest off-road race/festival). It has an extensive calendar of such events.
There is also a print version of Silent Sports. At their own admission, the magazine is never going to have supermodels in swimsuits on the cover, but it is the source for information on running, biking and paddling in Wisconsin and surrounding states.
The site also has some interesting articles that aren’t region-specific, so even if you are not a resident of the Upper Midwest states, if you enjoy any of those silent sports, check out the website at www.silentsports.net.
