October 16th Update

One Last Ride?  

Between the forecast for a cold autumn and some other weekend commitments we have, we are wondering if we will be able to get in one more long ride this season.  During the BMW MOA Tomah Getaway, we met some riders from Missouri and they gave us some riding ideas, so we are looking at the calendar and the forecast for that area now.

This is a great time to get out and explore the Driftless Area.  Fall colors are starting to peak and it should be just beautiful.  Here is the current fall foliage color map:

Colors will be peaking in Iowa and Illinois in the next two weeks.  So get out and enjoy Mother Nature’s colorful show before the leaves are all down and covered in snow!

Driftless Challenge:

The October Driftless Challenge is 1/2 over.  There is still plenty of time to enter and win.  Remember, this is the last monthly drawing and all of the winners will be entered in the Grand Prize Drawing at the end of the contest.

Upcoming Driftless Events:

Driftless area events are winding down, but there are still a few great things to do.  Check out the great events below!!

Just a reminder, if you you have a Driftless Event that is open to the public, let us know and we will add it to our Event’s Calendar and our weekly blog post.
