Mar 30: Lower WI River DS Rte, Ancient Effigy Mounds, Driftless Challenge Starts Saturday (4/1)!
Our highlighted route this week is one of our Dual Sport rides. The Lower Wisconsin River Dual Sport Route.
The Lower Wisconsin River Dual Sport Route alternates between paved and gravel roads along the lower Wisconsin and lower Kickapoo Rivers in Southwest Wisconsin. Although this route passes through many towns and gas stops are plentiful, some of these gravel roads feel very remote. Keep an eye out for wildlife!

Motorcycle Touring Ancient Effigy Mounds – Taking the Mounds of Mystery Tour
Historical motorcycle touring is becoming more and more popular. This type of travel is a terrific way to get to know the history of this magnificent land of ours.
Most touring destinations that visit historic places answer the what, when, where and why. Interpretive signage, guided tours, and literature at historic sites lay it all out for us — in most cases.
But there are some places that raise more questions — intriguing questions, no less — than they answer. One such place is the upper Mississippi River Valley and the Lower Wisconsin Riverway. Here, you can go back to prehistoric times and reveal mysteries that remain obscured by the mists of time – what we call the Mounds of Mystery Tour.
