Ride Across Wisconsin

La Crosse to Milwaukee in 235 Miles: 1 & 2 Day Options

This year the Ride Across Wisconsin will take you down the historic Elroy Sparta Trail, through the iconic tunnels, an overnight in the Dells for 2 day riders, a ferry across the Wisconsin River, a stop at Trek HQ in Waterloo and a huge party at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee. It doesn’t get much more Wisconsin than that! With multiple mileage options over 1 & 2 days, there’s a route for nearly everyone!

Challenge yourself to either the full 235 miles to Harley-Davidson or 165 miles to Trek in one day. Or split the ride into more bite-size pieces with a two-day option that includes an overnight in the Wisconsin Dells- ending in Milwaukee or Trek. You can even choose to ride half of the route.

The course will be marked, and SAG and technical assistance will be available, with rest stops so you can hydrate, eat, sleep, and even charge your e-bike battery, spaced conveniently along the way.

Ride Across Wisconsin is a fundraiser for the Wisconsin Bike Fed to help make Wisconsin a better place for bikes!

Register now—prices increase on July 31st!

  • DON’T DELAY: We’re placing another order for #BicycleColorado masks made by our friends at @primalwear TOMORROW (5/14) at noon! Click the link in our bio to get yours now!
We’re thrilled to see so many people out enjoying (and often rediscovering the joy of) riding a bike right now, and we’re asking ALL bicyclists to do their part to prevent the spread of #covid19 by wearing a mask or other face covering when out for a ride. Doing so keeps you, your loved ones, those around you, and all Coloradans safer while helping reduce stress on our medical system. If you still need a mask, click the link in our bio to pre-order one now and support our advocacy work! Thanks so much to everyone who has already purchased, and to @primalwear for supporting our efforts over the years. Ride on.
  • #BicycleColorado volunteers and staff members spent time today helping @denverurbangardens and @denverfoodrescue deliver “Grow a Garden” food boxes to home-bound families in Denver—via bike! Supporting our community on two wheels makes for a great way to spend a sunny day. Many thanks to our friends @ddchen47, David M., and @juggernautcargo for your help! Head to or to learn more about these great local organizations. #rideyourbike
  • Tonight the #BicycleColorado team celebrated Stacey, our outgoing Development Director, with a virtual happy hour. Stacey has been an absolute rockstar for BC. We’re sad to see her leave, but thrilled for her as she heads out on a new adventure (hopefully in the #BikeAdvocacy space!) in North Carolina. Please join us in wishing her well!
