Apr 19: River Bend (WI) Route, Slimey Crud Run, BMW Swap Meet
This weeks highlighted route, the River Bend Route, is an excellent route to try on your way to the Slimey Crud Run!
Named for the area where the Wisconsin River bends to the west, The River Bend Route has something for everyone. It includes twisty roads, open sweepers, elevation changes, a free ferry ride, scenic wonders, and a road called “Devil’s Delight”.
The River Bend Route traces the path of the Wisconsin River from Spring Green past Portage, Wisconsin. You will enjoy the open curves of Highway 60 and the free ferry crossing at Merrimac, on your way to Wisconsin Rustic Road #49 outside of Portage. After you finish with the rustic road, your path turns back southwest toward some great hills and scenery.
The final leg of this route will take you through Leland, which is one of the stops on the semi-annual Slimey Crud Run.
