Interested in bike touring, but not ready to take on the full journey? Try the Madison to Devils Lake overnight. It’s only 35 miles one way, so if you pack the wrong gear or the weather turns bad, just call a friend or family member. They’ll be less than an hour away.

This route takes you down paved low traffic roads through farm country and small woodlots, crosses the Wisconsin River on the free Merrimac Ferry and ends at Devils Lake State Park, one of Wisconsin’s most popular state parks. Spend the day lounging on the beach, swimming or hiking, then return the next day. Ambitious riders can extend the tour by visiting Baraboo, WI, home of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum Bailey Circus World Museum.
