Date: Sunday, August 15th
Time: between 7:00 and 7:30 a.m
Location: Depart Holmen square (blue cup coffee/river trail cycles)
Route Map: Whitehall 2010 (click to download PDF)
Route Description: Route-Departs Holmen travels west to Trempleau then heads northwest to the Trempleau River going through Dodge on it’s way to the first stop in Arcadia. Leaving Arcadia traveling north-east the route winds its way through the rolling countryside to the halfway point at Whitehall for our second stop. From Whitehall the course heads south and crosses three of the five moderate hills on the course. The rest of the ride is a flat or slightly rolling road to the next stop in Galesville and back to Holmen. This route has five moderate hills and some rolling terrain but is not hard compared to many routes in the Driftless Region and is a great first english century ride.
