Mineral Challenge

Mineral Challenge Professional Review and Guide

"In a county named after an Indian tribe whose hunting grounds once dominated the area, this ride leaves from a town named for Wisconsin’s first governor. You will ride north and pass a state park that is also named after this governor, then climb up Pleasant Ridge. At the top enjoy several miles of scenic vistas before coasting down into the next valley, where you will find a photo opportunity at a historic gristmill.

As the route follows the creek down the valley floor from the mill, you will soon turn onto a road that soldiers from Prairie du Chien built in 1835. The ride continues south through Long Valley and a town that has a restaurant with a bike on its roof."
