The Old Abe is a challenging and beautiful ride through western Wisconsin. The first third of the ride features a scenic ride through rolling farm country on lightly travelled roads. As the day rolls on, the climbs get bigger as you approach the Mississippi River Valley at Pepin. After a respite on the relatively flat Great River Road, riders will encounter a couple of serious climbs as they head inland. It is strongly suggested that you refill on food and water at the Alma Kwik Trip before leaving the Great River Road. After the control at Arcadia, two challenging climbs remain before a more relaxed 35 miles to the finish. The ride finishes at the Diehn residence where the rando cookout should be in full swing.
