I used to live on the east side of the river up there...and have now relocated to the west side a little farther SW.

I'm up for a ride most anytime. :mrgreen:

It sounds like several riders are interested in riding along the Mighty Mississippi. Let's make this happen! The stretch between Prairie Du Chien WI and LaCrosse WI is some of the best scenery along the entire River.
Cabella's in PDC is a good starting place. Also many hotels/motels in PDC.
I will volunteer to take everyone out on a boat ride after our two wheel adventure.
