CannonTracks - Touring Wisconsin - Dubuque to Bayfield

The attached GPX contains two routes and four trackline segments of less than 500 points each that will take you on a scenic and entertaining tour along the west coast of Wisconsin. The trip is about 540 miles long and is intended for big bikes. I have waypointed attractions and camping spots. It can be ridden in conjunction with one of two other long routes in Wisconsin to make a circle loop.

Here is a ride report that has photos from some of the Mississippi River segment.

Interactive map of the route:

As mentioned, you can pick one of these other routes, also posted in GPS Central, as a return route.

Thanks! One question: is this part of the route we're supposed to ride?

Files Availalble for Download Again

These tracks are now available again for download. Many thanks to fellow ADVer deputyjones who offered some server space.

Go to http://dsam-mi.org/GPS_Files/ and you will see a directory of folders that contain the files. You should be able to choose the proper directory without much trouble. The individual files will have names that are the same as or similar to the file names listed when the files were hosted on ADV.

The files are listed as .zip files. If you left click/open the file, you will open it in your computer's temporary internet directory. Depending on how you have your computer set up, clicking on the .gpx will open the file with Mapsource so you can look at it. Remember, it is in your temporary internet files.

To save the file in one of your neatly filed directories, "left click/save" or "right click/save target as" and put it where you want to keep it.

Some of the files have an associated spreadsheet file with points of interest (Black Hills, Pony Express, etc). Same procedures apply.

Happy to have quick and easy access to these files again.
