Hello all-- posting as a long shot in case some kind stranger can help me out.
I'll be wrapping up RAGBRAI this summer and was thinking of continuing on from Guttenberg to Madison over the course of 2 days to see some friends, but am having trouble picking out a general route / approach-- it seems like there are many options. I've ordered the maps from Wisconsin Bike Fed but haven't received them yet.
Does anyone have suggestions? Once I have a general route I'm comfortable with country roads, trails, and can find my way, but there are some big decisions to make...
Google Maps bike directions (https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Gutt...IA/Madison,+WI) suggests three different approaches as options. Do you know if the Military Ridge and Ice Age trails are interesting/reasonable to bike on with a touring (but not mountain) bike in those areas?
Thanks in advance for any tips...
(I'd love to keep riding to Chicago after that, but I may be out of time/energy/vacation...)
