Three route choices will be available for riders of all abilities, from beginners to experienced, fit cyclists. All rides are well-marked, maps provided to guide the way, and a sag wagon will be on hand for those who need some help. Rest stops with quality snacks and hydration will be provided. Stop and talk with some young athletes, find out why they’re willing to work for four years to travel to Hawaii. They will appreciate your support and interest!
The 50+ Challenge
This 55 mile ride is on paved blacktop through lightly traveled back roads. It is meant for the serious cyclist and involves changing terrain with steep hills, fast descents, rollers, and curved roads. If you enjoy a moderate challenge this is for you; a shorter loop is planned for those who opt to finish sooner. But, the scenery is worth the effort as this route winds past Amish and family farms, through woodlands and back roads with beautiful views, and alongside some world-class trout streams.

The shorter ride is meant for fun and the more casual rider. This shows off our newly paved Coon Prairie bike trail running between the two small towns of Viroqua and Westby. Go as far as you like, even to Westby, turn around and backtrack to the start. Take a rest at the pit stop halfway up the trail, there’s no hurry. Families are encouraged to participate in this ride, whether it's a short distance or the whole 12 miles! You do NOT have to go the entire 12 miles, only bike as far as you want. We think you’ll like the scenery here too.
