hy 35 the great river road does have some areas of high traffic but there is a good shoulder to ride on for most of it THe A C maps take you along the river on the iowa side I prefer the wisconsin side my self. the route you wil be on after crossing the river near minieapolis and going south on 35 is really nice the river town youLL go through are all friendly and you will find places to camp or cheep motels if that is your choice. There ae some hills on this route butall manageable the scenery is great. You will be able to catch the trail system near Trempalo and Perot state park Once oyu get the trail maps you will see how to get close to madison on them. Madison has a good trail system that connects to another to continue south twords Milwaukee
