As many of you know, the State of Wisconsin offers motorcyclists a special patch for completing rides on 10 designated Rustic Roads. Riders that complete rides on 25 designated Rustic Roads receive a special certificate. Basically, what is required is that you take a photograph of your motorcycle in front of the Rustic Road sign that bears the route number (i.e. R91). When you get 10 roads documented, send in the proof and get the patch. Information is available at: http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/safety/vehicle/motorcycle/rusticroads.htm Where are all these designated Rustic Roads you ask? You can find them in a pamphlet available at tourist information centers or you can check the web: http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/travel/scenic/maps.htm Since it is difficult to plan a route that includes 10 of these roads, I have prepared six GPS tracks to assist riders in making a qualifying ride. Follow one of the tracks, document the roads, and you will qualify for a 10 road patch. I prepared tracks for different areas of the state to accommodate riders from the different regions. Tracks will serve riders from the following locations: Milwaukee/SE WI Northern Illinois/SE WI Madison/south central WI NE Iowa, SE Minnesota, and SW WI Minneapolis and west central WI Green Bay, the Fox Valley, and central WI Interactive maps that allow you to explore the routes and .gpx files for download are available in the subject thread in GPS Central. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=228886 Some riders may not be too interested in being awarded the patch. Even so, the GPS tracks may serve as a nice route to ride that involves not only the designated Rustic Roads, but often some other entertainment as well. Hope some folks have fun with this (and score the patch as well)!
