^ Agree. County MM is a good one. I went and hit 6 in SW Wisco today ...
I got out yesterday and visited 41, 83, 114 & 18 for a 268 mile swing (Passed many other RR's I had already hit).
Beautiful gravel riding this day as the dust was minimal. A lot of areas have yet to be properly graded though from winter's toil on them.
Could not find a sign for RR41.
I ran into some snow left up on 114!
Never found the "start" sign for R18- but I did ride till I found the end.
All 120 Rustic Roads now on the GPX file in the "tracks" area.
I got out today to bag just three over a 287 mile swing, zig-zagging around one's I already have.
R6, R3, R116 = signs were visible at all of them!
Hit RR102 again as I was in the area. I love the Tenere on the gravel. I cannot wait to hit more.
Too many miles on an interstate to get there from Pewaukee for my liking, but RR119 got checked off yesterday. Hit a couple waves of rain on the way back, but such is life.
Wow, I had to look it up to see where it is. That's a dandy, but it's 400 miles one way for this rider. Great destination for "some day".
Described as 27 miles of pavement on an island, probably not another one of those on the Rustic system.
I have been part-way out on the Sturgeon Bay peninsula, but not to the end of it. Can you comment on the means in which one reaches the Island??
KLR powered boat, etc?
A ferry that is more likely powered by BMW given the rates. If I were to tag this one again, I would take the last ferry over in the evening, camp on the island(only a few $$ more than Peninsula SP), ride the crap out of the road(s), return to mainland the first ferry of the next morning.
Was crossing the state this weekend and ran into these, checked them both out.
Tagged the new one today.
Picked up a few while wandering yesterday.
Looked like today was going to be the nicest day for awhile so I went out after a couple of them near Menomonie.
The recent rains held the dust down nicely on the gravel.
The random-route my GPS chose to take me as I traveled between #89 and #107 was great, which is often the case when hunting rusties.
We are leaving for a 6 day trip on the 21st. I highlighted all of the RR that were close to our route, and if we stick to it, i think I will pick up between 10 and 15. Looking forward to seeing all of them.
107 is on the list ^^^^
Sounds like a nice adventure!
We are sooo excited. We are planning a 6 day 1,300 mile trip. Now we need the weather to cooperate.
Took a ride Sunday and hit RR100, nice 600 mi round trip.
I rode up to Florence County and Forest County from Green Bay today planning to ride these two. I started in RR 74 from the east and it is not marked well. Even after a lot of map checking I came out on 8 instead of 139. RR 34 had just had fresh wet gravel dumped on it and I would have been the first vehicle on it. My limited skills are such that I wasn’t going to take my GSA on that. So I took the photo and headed south for a double cheeseburger at Palubicki’s drive in in Crandon. It was about a 320 mile day.
Went and picked up 91,54 and 45 yesterday for a nice 220 mile ride. A friend and I started on this a couple years ago and I sat out for a while due to a back injury. so far I have ridden 14 different rustic roads mostly around the west central part of the state since its close to home. So far 51 and 91 are my favorites. Im sure there will be more on the list as I go along. Anyone else have some favorites that stand out above the rest?
A couple favorites of mine:
R26 south of Lacrosse, Wisc. is nice, when you spiral your way to the top of the little mountain (hill) there are some sweet curves and such.
look for a windmill and take that dead-end/turn off as a small bonus ride off the main RR. There is the remains of a ski-lift on that dead-end, great views. Then ride back to the main RR and continue on.
Windmill just off of R26:
In the northern part of the state there is a cluster of them --
notably 95 and 111 as they are long (and snag 108 as long as your up there)
Some great views on 95-111-- it can be a little confusing to stay on these two as they loop around, but that's half the fun
I ran it all on a Versys-- mostly gravel, start with plenty of gas!
Taking a break off the 95-111 loop.
Not sure if you have this link bookmarked, but it can be handy when trying to read/find out more about a RR by it's number,
sometimes I end up on the side of the road reading it on the smart phone to see where I might be going next. I use it in addition to the map and GPX file.
