Starting location: Kwik Trip, 378 W. Seminary St, Richland Center, WI
Ride Description: This route takes advantage of how quickly you can be on quiet country roads after leaving Richland Center. It passes through Gotham and Lone Rock then crosses the Wisconsin River for the first time to ride through the river valley toward Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliessen. The route then crosses the Wisconsin River again then goes through Spring Green for an easy few miles through farmland before climbing over the ridge toward Sextonville. A few more easy miles then one last climb up toward Hustlers Ridge where you’ll want to stop and enjoy the view before a high speed descent (careful!) takes you back into Richland Center for the finish.
If you have time and are riding on a Saturday or Sunday, you can stop at the Spring Green General store for breakfast. They serve a very good breakfast until 11:00.
