Nov. 13th Update – Ride Pics, Rider Feedback, Black Friday Sale!!

One Last Ride?  Finally!!

We finally got out for a short ride last Saturday and we are glad we did.  Sunday the temperatures dropped and Monday we woke up to snow!!  Although it was a short ride, we had a lot of fun on some new (to us) roads.

Rider Feedback:  We started Driftless Road Adventures because we wanted to encourage people to get out and ride the great roads in the Driftless Area. We thought by sharing our routes we might get a few people to try some new roads and discover why we fell in love with the region.  Recently we received a wonderful letter from someone who has ridden several of our routes.  We were so thrilled that this follower did just that, got out there and had some adventures of his own, that we wanted to share a portion of it with everyone:

Your maps have completely transformed the riding experience for me.  Before discovering Driftless Road Adventures, I would go out and wander the countryside.  I would waste a lot of time and  be reluctant to go someplace I did not know.  Your routes are astounding and have made the whole riding experience much more fulfilling and enjoyable.

Your website has saved me dozens of hours in research, planning  and plotting.   I can plan a whole weekend of riding in about an hour, including places to eat, gas stops  and cool places of interest too. 

I put over 10,000 mile on my KTM 1290 this year.  All of it in the Driftless Area!  The amount of time, attention to detail and dedication to build the routes is truly astounding. My hat is off to you (Renee) and Dale.  Driftless Road Adventures is an outright gem! 

Thank you Doug for your kind words!!
