Wildcat Mountain Wander 300K
September 17 @ 6:00 am - 11:00 pm$15.00
There is a bridge out in Sparta! I’ve done a route that detours around it but note that if you need to resupply it’s roughly 54 miles from the control in Norwalk to Cashton.
If you need to resupply, I recommend you turn right on Hill St (mile 90.3) to where it “T’s” with WI-27/Citizen Soldier Hwy, make a left where you’ll see lots of food & drink options (Burger King, Culvers, McDonald’s and a Kwik Trip) then retrace your steps to rejoin the detour route. On Saturday you might be able to get across the bridge (it was complete when I previewed it on Monday 9/12) if they’re not working on it but be aware you might need to retrace your steps.
We’ll be running this route in conjunction with shorter and longer events and roll out together so even if you’re the only rider signed up for your particular distance it’s likely you’ll have company for at least part of the way.
The brief for this ride is the same as the Norwalk, Black River and Cranberry Country rides: challenging but not overly brutal climbs mixed with long stretches on ridge tops and rolling through river valleys. Store stops placed at regular intervals to give you a chance to refresh and regroup. Lots of beautiful scenery and quiet roads.
