This tour showcases the beautiful rolling hills of southwest Wisconsin. Ride options include challenging routes of 35, 55, 85 and 100 miles for the cycling enthusiast. Rest stops on each route include great snacks, sports drinks and wonderful hosts. At the end of the ride enjoy a delicious dinner.

With routes climbing between 1500 and 9000 feet, you'll wish you had an extra set of legs! But don’t just do it for you… Do this ride not only to achieve your personal goals, but the goals of the Iowa County Humane Society (ICHS). The ICHS is a non-profit, no kill shelter. We run primarily on donations. Help the ICHS to provide care for lost and abandoned animals until they find good homes. All proceeds from this ride go to benefit the Iowa County Humane Society (ICHS).

This ride is literally going to the cats and dogs.
