This route goes west of Richland Center and incorporates a number of lengthy stretches in river valleys along with the inevitable climbs over the ridge tops that links them together!

We leave Richland Center and head north toward Yuba. We’ll do a brief stretch on Hwy 80 before turning off on CR-C just past Hub City. A long stretch on CR-C then a climb up toward our first info control where we’ll turn west and head through the Kickapoo Valley Reserve toward Ontario which is a popular start location for “floaters” on the Kickapoo River.

From Ontario, we head toward our second control at Norwalk followed by a stiffish climb up to the ridge tops headed toward our third control at Cashton. Our control is the Central Express and at 62 miles in this is a good stop for a bite to eat before continuing on. The Cashton area is a well known Amish community so watch out for those horses and buggies (not to mention the “deposits” on the road!).

From Cashton we’ll drop back down into the valley for a nice roll through the “town” of Avalanche then through to our next info control at Liberty. Not long after that, a longish climb up and over a ridge then a descent on CR-E through Sabin toward Boaz. Make sure you look for the nesting bald eagles toward the west somewhere in the vicinity of mile 111.

A convenience store in Boaz gives the opportunity to refuel if needed then on to CR-Q and back to Richland Center.

Driftless Randonneurs is based out of beautiful Western Wisconsin, where some of the best riding in the country is based.  SW Wisconsin has plenty of hills and is characterized by many hills and valleys over low traffic roads. The Regional Brevet Administrator (RBA) for this region is Greg Smith.  

The Driftless Randonneurs ride schedule for 2019 features some old favorites and some new routes and formats with the emphasis on getting qualified and prepared for Paris-Brest-Paris (PBP). All brevets start in the back parking lot of the White House Ramada Inn, 1450 Veterans Drive, Richland Center.
