Vacation time is near - Trempealeau County, WI!

After much indecision I have finally decided to spend several days cycling the scenic backroads of Trempealeau County, WI. I have done a few rides there and the rides and scenery are amazing. Here is the link to Bicycling Magazines experience there:

And a few pics from when I rode a few years back. Great scenery and challenging climbs, fun descents, friendly locals, and low traffic rural roads! C'mon Saturday, get here fast!

Beautiful area, some really tough hills.

Take a look at the routes for the Arcadia Brute ride for some ideas:

Some great riding, was able to ride with the Trempealeau County Bike Club (ridebctc.com) on the Tuesday night ride. A great way to see the area and not get lost! I also was able to do 4 of the Loops, and found out 2 of the loops will be signed this year so no carrying a map and q sheet! The scenery and low traffic makes this an excellent cycling vacation destination. I hope to do it again!
