"Groad" is booming and we are lucky enough to live close enough to the amazing Driftless region. A short while ago, I had the pleasure of exploring some beautiful new (gravel) roads in the Galena territory. I wrote about this little adventure on CyclingTips and would be more than happy to share the route. What are your favorite hidden gems (on and off-road) in Illinois, Wisconsin or the other neighboring states?
"Galena, the Midwest's Best Kept Secret"?? With a population of under 3,500, it attracts nearly a million visitors a year. Someone let the cat out of the bag.
The hills make it a great destination for cyclists. I think that's the cat that's still in the bag ;-) Illinois has such a rep for being SO flat but Galena is a great place to get a hills fix.
Jasmin, thanks for posting - love this article. Beautiful photo!
Would be great! Thanks.
Could you send me a file/copy of the route map?
@JMinHP, let me know what email I should send it to for you!
