Cycling in Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Hills

In terms of cycling, the Wisconsin Hills refers to that part of central, western Wisconsin, east of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. One can ride from towns like Prescott, River Falls, Plum City, Baldwin, Maiden Rock, Menomonie, Nelson, Durand, or Alma, and quickly be on quiet and pleasant roads that have little traffic. Indeed, through farmland and wooded land, the roads roll up and down, and often there are fairly impressive hills.

This is some of the best cycling in the U.S., to go along with some of the best variety of roads to choose from. The photos should give you an idea of what it’s like, and why riders are impressed with this part of the World. There are many routes these rides can take–I have included some of them on this page.

And if it’s not the dead of Winter, you might take a look at the TCBC Calendar, where there’s a distinct possibility of a ride scheduled through the Wisconsin Hills.
