Check out these 2 Great Rides:
Buena Vista (WI) Route:
The Buena Vista Route is named for Alma’s Buena Vista Park which is not only a great place to stop and stretch, it also features the largest natural balcony overlooking the Mississippi River. Visitors can watch barges traveling up and down the river and locking through Lock & Dam #4, or just take in the amazing views of the entire river valley.
Although the park is one of the major attractions on this route, the roads are the real reason to visit the area. The geography along the Mississippi River consists of high bluffs and deep, secluded valleys. Many of the roads connecting the various towns and villages follow the contours of the land which results in a roller coaster type of ride in several areas. As you travel farther northeast away from the Mississippi River, the hills are not as steep and the land opens up to rolling countryside. Here you encounter longer sweeping corners and more straight sections. Because of the wide variety of road types, this route truly has something for everyone.
The Buena Vista Route is one of our all time favorites. It has a lot of the small, secluded roads that we personally enjoy and it also has some great sights and attractions to visit along the way. So if you have not already done so, make sure to put the Buena Vista Route high on your to-do list.

Marshfield (MO) Loop:
The Marshfield Loop is located in Central Missouri just a short distance East of Springfield. This route consists of a loop between Marshfield, Mansfield, and Ava with a visit to Mark Twain National Forest in between.
The location of this route is ideally situated for rider attending the 2022 BMW MOA Rally in Springfield. Check it out!
