I received an issue of Bicycling magazine (must be the bike I ordered?) and it included a nice article about Trempealeau county in Wisconsin (http://www.bicycling.com/ride-maps/featured-rides/perfect-getaway), with some online maps and cue sheets (http://www.bicycling.com/bike-travel/more-trempealeau-county-wisconsin). Any TErs there? It looks intriguing... I'll be checking the web site of the local bike club (http://ridebctc.com/) to see if it's updated for any organized ride next spring/summer, in my quest to ride hillier landscapes.

I don't live there but DH and I did a week long bike trip in that area about 4 years ago. It's a great place to ride but better do some hill training first. I couldn't believe how "mountainous" the area was. I would highly recommend the area. It's even better than the description in the article. Beautiful scenery, wonderful roads, great weather and the local folks made us feel very welcome. I would do it again. I just recommend Wisconsin for riding, period. Love the place!

Thanks Bike Chick! No hills nearby... escapades to Wisconsin and Indiana (Hilly Hundred) are my only exposure to them. I suffer, but it is so much fun and I feel the difference in my fitness level. I only decided to spend the required driving hours this year.
