This classic ride mirrors the excellent Chippewa Valley Century Ride established as an annual Memorial Day weekend bike event that serves great beer and brats at the end. The route leaves from a city that at one time had the largest sawmill operation under one roof, and circles around to the north, passing the Old Abe Recreational Trail, which runs parallel to the Chippewa River. You will visit a village that was originally named for its red clay banks, and after passing the historic Cobban Bridge, you enter a town that was named for the president of a university. After crossing over the Holcombe Flowage, the route takes you into Rusk County to the confluence of the Flambeau and Chippewa Rivers, then turns away from the river and follows the rolling terrain around several lakes before crossing over the Ice Age Trail. You then circle back to the south along the verdurous irrigated farm fields running through the Chippewa Valley and discover several little towns along the way. Upon your return to Chippewa Falls, the route passes through the zoo and then back to sample a brew at the Leine Lodge.
