I'm sure most everyone that's going to CFO is aware that all ride route maps & GPS files can be had at the CFO Website.
There is one addition that will have to be added. I found it in the December 2010 issue of Rider Magazine in the "Favorite Ride" section titled Drifting Back In Time. I recreated the map with a few changes, but highlighted the stops which were talked about in the article.

Points of Interest (303 miles)

Note: Updated link to the article in Rider magazine.

That's a nice route :good: I was just down that way today. Did a loop that included Spatra, Cashton, Westby, Viroqua, Purdy Vally, Ferryville and De Sota. The bad news was I needed to be in my car :glare: Most of the snow is gone but there's still tons and tons of sand but those roads will be rideable as soon as the temps get up there a bit more. The river is really high all the locks had their dams wide open and the water was really flowing. In spite of that I saw one tug pushing a few barges upstream, very slowly.

Stick to the alphabet roads for the best riding, IMHO. ;)

Clicked on the link for the "Points of Interest" route and get a "Page not found" message.

Hmmm, I clicked on the Points of Interest link in this thread and on the Ride page on the CFO web site and got the route :huh:

Maybe some one smarter than me can help you.

Yeah I just checked the links for the Google Maps on both places & I had no problem.
Not sure what the error is or was, but seems to be working now.

today on my lunch break I'm going to work on making a GPX file for the 'country roads' routes, along with a loop through wild cat mountain state park. PM me if you're interested in these.
