Starting location: White House Ramada Inn, 1450 Veterans Drive, Richland Center, WI, rear parking lot
Ride Description: This ride samples some of the most beautiful areas of SW Wisconsin and the majority of the ride is on quiet country roads. The route has a moderate amount of climbing (for the area) and the climbs are well distributed through the ride to provide ample time to recover along with long flat to rolling stretches that allow you to put “time in the bank”. The controls are at convenience stores where you can restock and recharge with the Fennimore control being an open control that you’ll arrive at around lunch time so you can take advantage of the area restaurants for a longer break if you choose. The towns along the way include Boscobel, Fennimore and Spring Green. The early start time coupled with the long days should allow riders to do the majority if not all of the ride in daylight though lights and reflective gear are required.
