We’ve designed these routes to be ridden self-supported, either individually or in small groups, without the need of a tour guide or ride leader. All are designed as loops, leaving from public parks or parking lots. Wherever possible, you’ll travel on low-traffic rural roads, or at least on roads with bike facilities. To help you stay self-sufficient, we’ve marked optional stops every 25-30 miles at convenience stores or public parks. The routes on this site are graded from “Easy” to “Difficult” to help you choose the appropriate level of challenge. Images on Flickr help you preview the terrain. And most importantly, we’ve created maps, elevation charts and cue sheets to let you navigate the route yourself. Under each of the routes, click on the icon of the folded blue map to go to a shared Dropbox folder of printable PDFs and cue sheets. Or click the “Ride with GPS” logo to go to a detailed route map — downloadable to computers, smartphones and GPS devices — with turn-by-turn directions, cue sheets, elevation profiles, photos, points of interest and GPX/TCX/KML files. Ride on!
Generally, we consider an elevation gain of 100-200 feet a small climb, 201-350 feet a moderate climb, and 351-500 feet a big climb. But be aware: since they might have a steep grade, even the smaller hills can still be very tough to climb. Given such variety, it’s just as easy to create an easy ride with few hills as it is to map out a fiendish route that averages ten thousand feet of climbing every ten miles. We’ve created routes with both extremes, and everything in between.
The Driftless Region
The corrugated geography of the Driftless is overlaid with a network of smooth, low-traffic county byways, paved in the early-20th century “Good Roads” movement to connect dairy farmers with their markets. For much of the last decade, area cyclists and volunteers have worked with the La Crosse Area Convention and Visitor’s Bureau to build a library of routes, with a variety of lengths and difficulties offering excitement and challenges for all levels of riders.
Generally starting from the river valley cities of La Crosse, Onalaska, and La Crescent, these routes venture into the bluffs and coulees of the surrounding Driftless region. Some of these counties have been described by Bicycling magazine as “the perfect getaway,” and “cycling nirvana, the American Dairyland edition. ”

La Crosse Omnium
The La Crosse Omnium is an epic three-stage battle for bike racing supremacy which takes place May 5 – 7, 2017. The La Crosse Omnium calls upon a diverse “three-event” mastery of bike racing skills. Enter one event, two, or all three as points scored in each event accumulate toward the Omnium Championship.
The event consists of 3 races over the weekend:
- Hill: Friday’s lung searing, Grandads Bluff time trial climbs 550 feet in 2.4 miles and racers go off every 30 seconds starting at 4:30 pm.
- Road: Stage two racing action picks up Saturday morning morning a few short miles across the river in Minnesota. Our road race course tests a riders ability to compete at an intense level on a 13.69-mile loop that features 654 feet of elevation change per lap, heart stopping climbs, take your breath away descents and quad burning rollers.
- Downtown Criterium: Stage two racing action picks up Saturday morning morning a few short miles across the river in Minnesota. Our road race course tests a riders ability to compete at an intense level on a 13.69-mile loop that features 654 feet of elevation change per lap, heart stopping climbs, take your breath away descents and quad burning rollers.
PLEASE NOTE: No specific location is listed for the event as the three races differ – please read the 2017 La Crosse Omnium Race Bible for details!
Pre-registration for all three races at $20 for each event brings the total to $60 for the junior categories and at $40 for each event bringing the total to $120.00 for all other categories. Pre-registration for the Time Trial is mandatory, and closes on May 2nd at midnight central time. Day of registration will be available for the Criterium and the Road Race only with a late entry fee additional charge of $10 per event.

5th Annual Apple Blossom Tour featuring Greg LeMond is set! The Rotary Club of La Crescent is proud to announce the partnership of their 2017 Apple Blossom Bike Tour with LIZFEST. LIZFEST is a local festival dedicated to celebrating the life of Elizabeth Holman Melde, a young woman who died of lung cancer in 2012. Lizfest is a family fun event with music, food and beverages, as well as a volleyball tournament, a golf tournament and games for the whole family.
The Rotary Club is sponsoring their 5th Annual Apple Blossom Bike Tour and is excited to be a part of LIZFEST. In addition to supporting the fundraiser to battle cancer, the Rotary Club will dedicate proceeds to Rotary International which supports the eradication of polio throughout the world.
Supporting our efforts, three-time Tour de France winner, Greg LeMond, will be joining in the ride again this year and then following it up with fun at LIZFEST. People interested in riding with Greg can sign up for the rides at www.appleblossomtour.org or online at IMAthlete.com.
