Lance’s Wisconsin Challenge Professional Review and Guide

"On this route you will explore some of the same Jefferson County roads that Lance Armstrong used to test his equipment before the Tour de France. The challenge departs from a town named after a general who put down the Black Hawk uprising, then travels northeast through the rolling countryside. Soon you will visit a town on the shores of Rock Lake, which is said to have sacrificial pyramids at its bottom.

Farther north visit the town where TREK bikes are made. Now rolling east, the route crosses the Crawfish River at Old Plank Road. You then arrive in a community on the Rock River, where you should visit the fifty-seven-room Historic Octagon House. Now circling to the south, ride through the river-bottom flats and pass through a town that, at the turn of the twentieth century, became the dairy center of the state. Riding the final stage of the challenge, pass through the county seat with its Civil War era architecture. Now it’s just a short jaunt back to Fort Atkinson."
