Free Midwest Motorcycle Routes
Hi everyone!

This is Dale Hoke. Renee and I met a bunch of you last May during the Bonzai rally.

This past winter we started a new project and we are finally ready to share it.

We are pleased to announce the launch of DriftlessRoadAdventures.com.

DriftlessRoadAdventures.com is a free website designed to share pre-planned motorcycle routes in the Driftless Area of the upper Midwest. Our website contains free GPS routes for 33 unique single-day trips covering the entire Driftless Areas of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and Illinois. We also include historic and scenic points of interest on every route to help you plan your ride. We do the work so that you can enjoy the ride!

We hope you enjoy it.

Thanks.

Dale

Nice job Dale! I've ridden the La Crosse area several times and it is some of the best riding in our area.

I sure wish I lived closer I would love to take the Driftless Challenge to see how may routes I could rack up.

You are right Don. We tried to include the most fun roads we could find (by our definition anyway).

Hello again.

I just wanted to let everyone know that we have been working to fix up some of the problems we uncovered during our initial launch.

Now that we have that behind us we are going to start releasing new routes as fast as possible.

Be sure to follow us for the latest updates!

RE: Free Midwest Motorcycle Routes
Hello Everyone.

We have not posted for quite a while and we wanted to bring you up to speed on this past year and our plans for the future.

For those of you who don't know us, or don't remember us, we are Dale and Renee and we have created DriftlessRoadAdventures.com. This is a website that offers free self-guided tour routes in the Driftless Areas of Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.

We launched the website in April of 2018, and since the launch we have been very busy. We created 33 individual, single day routes covering over 8,500 miles of awesome roads. We attended several events including the Rev It Up for Awareness Ride, the Triumph ATLAK event, and the BMWMOA Rally in Des Moines. We also met with and shared our website with several motorcycle dealers throughout the Driftless Area.

Although we have not had a very big presence on individual motorcycle forums, we have spent a lot of time on other social media platforms by blogging regularly and sharing our blog posts on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram. We also opened a store and began to sell Driftless Road Adventure branded merchandise.

In addition to all of these activities, we still managed to ride 5 of our new routes and take a trip on the northern portion of the T.W.A.T and the Lake Superior north shore.

We had a lot of fun in 2018 and 2019 is shaping up to be just as busy and just as much fun. Some of the things we are working on include:

Website Updates, including a calendar of area events and rides.
New challenges and contests.
Driftless area group rides.
Dual Sport recommendations.
Paper maps for those that like to go old school.

The new events calendar is already available on the website, and we are continuously adding events as details firm up. if you know of an event, please let us know. I have added all of the GLMC events that I found on your calendar. But I'll keep checking back for updates.

Thanks for all of your support in 2018. We hope you have a safe and fun 2019.

Dale and Renee
