THE SPILLVILLE RIDE WEEKEND
Three days of scenic back roads along the river and throughout Wisconsin and Iowa, plus seven Cruisers, plus good food, plus lots of wind, plus heat and humidity coming back equals a great trip to Spillville, Iowa!
FRIDAY: We started from Randall’s Pancake House in South Elgin and made our way to Potosi Brewing Company in Potosi, WI for lunch. We then continued up along the Great River road to LaCrosse, WI where we stayed for two nights. We ate at the North Country Steak Buffet, which included all you can eat grilled steaks, sirloin burgers and/or chicken plus a salad bar, hot food bar, and of course, a dessert bar.Everyone enjoyed the variety.
SATURDAY: We wound our way to Spillville, Iowa and visited the Bily Clock Museum. The clocks were designed and carved by the Bily brothers. The beautifully carved clocks worked and were carved with rudimentary tools. From there, we took more curvy roads back to LaCrosse. The riders were pretty beat up from the wind all day, but everyone agreed we had traveled some great roads!
SUNDAY: We rode more scenic roads back to the suburbs and home. The humidity was high and the temperature was in the lower 90s. The riders were all exhausted upon arriving home after an approximately 850 mile weekend through some of the best scenic roads of Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota.
If you missed this trip, consider joining us October 7th through October 9th, for a three day adventure going to the covered bridges of Parke County, Indiana.
