Note that while every effort has been made to make the ridewithgps route accurate and useful, your official route document is the cue sheet you will be given on the morning of the ride. This is to accommodate possible last minute route changes due to construction, hazardous road conditions, etc.
Ride description: The majority of the route is on quiet country roads through Wisconsin farm country. The controls, located in Soldiers Grove, Viroqua, La Farge and Rock Bridge provide opportunities to stop and recharge with the Viroqua control being at a food co-op that has a nice deli for a lunch break if you choose. The route has a fair amount of climbing but the majority of the climbs are in the 5-7% range with a few 11-12% climbs to make sure you get your moneys worth!
Details: We’ll leave from the rear parking lot of the Ramada Inn at 1450 Veterans Drive at 08:00 sharp. Given that it’s the end of the year and the days are getting shorter, lights and reflective gear are required for this ride.
Riders should arrive no later than 07:30 for registration and checkin.
