I live in west central WI and am planning my first tour of the 2010 season. I would like to head up to Ashland, WI then enter the UP and head east to Hwy 45 and reenter WI.
I seek advice on the Hwy 2 and 45 part of the route. What can I expect for traffic volume in May/June? Is there enough shoulder to ride? BTW, is it a very hilly route?
