    This is the updated route and tracks for the 2013 Great River Gravel Ride. I have broken it in to 2 routes but on a recommendation form Cannonshot please note the route is over 100 via points please check your personal GPS to see how many points it can handle. The route may need to be broken up in to several routes to accommodate your GPS. I have covered most of the route so this will be the route we will be running. I hope everyone likes it. It will be a mix of Gravel Pavement and a few level-B's weather permitting. Unfortunately for us Wisconsin seams to be paving more and more roads all the time so there is a fair amount of bituminous roads we will cover. The up side to them is no dust or mud just nice views.

    Hey Craig. Just a couple miles off this route there is anohter good b-level road that I took a group through the last time we camped at Scenic View Campground called Imperial Avenue.

    Go South out of the campground on Scott Hollow Rd to Jeff Davis Dr, East to Imperial Avenue, then South on Imperial. If you zoom in on google maps, you see it does go through.

    That's my $.02.

    I have made changes after pre-running most of the route.

    Here is the option 2 Route and Tracks. Look it over it was done on short notice. Hopefully the ferry will be open and we won't need it.

    I'm trying to look at this file and having a hard time. :cry

    I can get it on my laptop, but I can't download it on my smart phone. I get download failed each time. I'd like to use google earth to see the roads.

    Any ideers?
