La Crosse Riverfest Weekend

  • Jul 3, 2010 · 8:00 AM
  • Brookstone Inn

Join us for a fun 4th of July weekend outing, Saturday, July 3rd and Sunday, July 4th, in La Crosse, where they will be celebrating their annual Riverfest! Each day, we will have a group breakfast, then head out for a bike ride. Afternoon activities after our bike rides include touring the town, going for ice cream, relaxing at the motel or going for a swim in your motel's pool. In the evening, we'll head over to
Riverfest where they will have 6 stages of musical entertainment, food vendors and fireworks on the 4th of July.
Trail Rides
Saturday: Great River State Trail (Options for 30 or 48 miles) The
Great River State Trail has fantastic views of the upper Mississippi River valley. The trail has a
crushed limestone surface and is suitable for hybrid bikes or road bikes with wider tires. The trail runs along an abandoned railroad line and is very flat. We'll stop for lunch in
Trempealeau and take several breaks along the way.
Sunday: La Crosse River State Trail (Options for 31 or 43 miles) The
La Crosse River State Trail lies in the La Crosse River valley and has views of the prairies. The trail has a
crushed limestone surface and is suitable for hybrid bikes or road bikes with wider tires. The trail runs along an abandoned railroad line and is very flat. We'll stop for lunch and take several breaks along the way.
Mountain Bike Rides La Crosse is home to the
HPT and TNT trails, which are maintained by
Human Powered Trails. If you are interested in the mountain bike rides, please post a note in your RSVP to connect with your fellow mountain bike riders so you can plan your weekend riding.
Road Rides There will not be any organized road rides this year, but the
La Crosse Area Convention & Visitors Bureau [masked]) will be happy to send you a booklet, "7 Rivers Region Cycling Maps", for those who wish to go out and explore the road routes in the region. Also, nearby Trempealeau County has prepared a
map of 17 loops throughout their county specifically for bicycling. If you are interested in road rides, please post a note in your RSVP to connect with your fellow road riders so you can plan your weekend riding.
La Crosse Accommodations The
La Crosse website lists many motels, B&B's and campgrounds. The following motel is recommended for our stay so that we may easily coordinate our activities over the weekend.


  • Brookstone Inn [masked] $64-80 per night. They have an indoor swimming pool and whirlpool. AAA discounts available.


An email will be sent to everyone who RSVPs with the specific plans for each day.
Note: A Wisconsin state trail pass is required to ride on these trails. There are many places in La Crosse where you may purchase either a daily or annual trail pass.

    Had a great time and was glad so many people joined for the weekend! Saturday's ride had nice views of the Mississippi River. We avoided most of the rain on Sunday's ride, which was nice with a smoother trail.

    The plan for each day is to meet for breakfast (inside the motel) at 8:00 AM. TENTATIVELY, each day's ride would push-off from the motel parking lot at 9:30 AM. (That is, plan to be in the parking lot no later than 9:15 AM or you might miss us!)
