Our 2017 Calendar

Some new routes and new formats for 2017. A couple of complete new routes will debut in May with the “Wildcat Mountain Wander” and “Back in Black (River Falls)” 300K and 400K routes. I’ve previewed the 400K route a couple of times and have to say that it features some of the best roads and riding in SW Wisconsin!

We’re also offering a new format this year. On ride weekends where multiple distances are offered, the routes will be the same as far as possible so we’ll all be able to ride together for a while before those going on to the longer distance will press onward while those opting for a shorter day will begin the journey toward the finish.

With the exception of our 3rd annual “Dart Pop weekend” in July, all events and routes are ACP certified so they’ll qualify if you’re pursuing the various ACP and RUSA awards. Unless noted otherwise in the details for a particular ride, all rides start in the rear parking lot of the White House Ramada Inn at 1450 Veterans Drive, Richland Center.
