Yo will be visiting the communities of La Crescent, Houston, Brownsville, and Hokah.  This featured ride is known as the Driftless Region’s Most Scenic Ride (DRMSR). DRMSR features wide-open landscapes and several challenging climbs on this 82-mile loop. The optional Apple Blossom ride leaves LaCrosse by the same route and explores the same region as the DRMSR, but is done in just 35 miles, at your own speed.

Also consider the annual LaCrosse Gravel Classic. This being its seventh year, you can treat this 56-mile course as a road race or a bike tour enjoying the scenery along the way.
