    Packers Training Camp

    Sports Illustrated's Peter King listed the Packers as having one of the best training camps in the NFL and also anointed it one of the "Summer Essentials" -- a list of SI's writers' recommendations for the ultimate sports summer.

    King cited the Packers' open practices at the Don Hutson Center and Lambeau Field's Pro Shop, the Packers Hall of Fame and Curly's Pub as reasons why training camp is a must-see. He also mentioned the Packers' bicycling tradition.

    To and from training camp practices, local children lend the players their bikes and often ride atop its handlebars. This ritual dates back to 1961 when Vince Lombardi asked his players to ride bikes to practice in an effort to augment the team's relationship with their fans.

    The articles about Packers training camp appear in si.com's "Inside the NFL" section, ranking the NFL's top five training camps, and the July 11th issue of Sports Illustrated, which recommends 25 places to visit this summer.
