Well, not sure if this is the right place for this, so if nnot feel free to move it. Wife and I are staying 3 nights in Lacrosse Wisconsin this week, and today we did the Great River Road ride. We left Lacrosse at aboout 11:00 this morning, and headed North on the Wisconsin side. Went up to Hager City, and then crossed into Minnesota, and headed back South. Went a total of 200 miles, and got back to our hotel about 6:30. I was so happy with the gas mileage the 85 Aspencade got. 51mpg!:eek: I have about 30 pics, but wont post them all yet.

Didnt need these today. It was in the 80's and sunny all day.


Here are a few right outside our room, we are staying at the Best Western in Lacrosse, right on the river. This place gets 5 stars from us. $100 a nigh.

Our first night in the room, I ended up with a migraine. Thats why I look like I want to cry.



These are taken right out our room.

Looks like a nice place to ride. What state were you in that does not require a helmet? Wish Tn would pass the no helmet law.

Thanks for the pictures. Looks like a nice area to ride. The temperatures sound a lot better than what we have down here in August. Of course the temperatures here are a lot better to ride in January and February. I hope to get up that way soon.
