The Mindoro Cut Route:
The Mindoro Cut Route includes one of the most famous motorcycle roads in Wisconsin, the Mindoro Cut.
It is the second-deepest cut built by hand in the Western Hemisphere and the oldest functional cut which has not been improved upon. However, the entire cut was completely resurfaced in 2019.
This route is centered on La Crosse, WI, and is among our favorites because most of the roads are smaller and very twisty. The majority of the Mindoro Cut Route is situated among the tall bluffs that border the Mississippi River and the resulting roads, while paved, can be extremely challenging.
There are many parks and other points of interest along the entire route so be sure to check them out. One of our favorite stops is at Granddad’s Bluff, where the views are spectacular. In addition to the cut and the parks, this route also provides access to three Wisconsin Rustic Roads (#s 26, 32, and 64).

Driftless Fun Fact:
Did you know that the hills of the Driftless Region actually “breathe”? It’s true! And it is one benefit of riding near them in the hot summer months!
The steep slopes built of limestone are full of holes, caves, and crevices. Hot air is taken in at the top of the slope and moves downward through those openings. It can actually come out the bottom of the slope 40 degrees cooler than it went in.
If you ride in the shadow of the bluffs and hills on a hot summer day, you will actually feel the cool “exhale” that comes from within the slopes themselves.
