La Crosse, WI (PRWEB) April 14, 2015
With the January launch of http://www.bicyclelacrosse.com, the La Crosse Area Convention & Visitors Bureau and local cycling advocates have demonstrated a commitment to promoting the Driftless Region as a year-round destination for self-supported cycling.
In addition to being an excellent all-around resource for cyclists of all kinds, Bicycle La Crosse provides riders with several ways to get maps and routes, including cue sheets, printable PDF maps, and links to files on http://www.ridewithgps.com, which has a smartphone app providing turn-by-turn navigation, as well as the best mapping tools to help self-supported cyclists find roads, bike paths, or out-of-the-way rest stops.
Now, Ride with GPS has named Bicycle La Crosse to their Ambassador Program, which highlights well-designed, well-documented, tried-and-true rides from a region. "We want to see the best routes, presented in the best way," says Ride with GPS's Zack Ham, "because that is what creates great cycling experiences."
When the program debuted in March, all twelve initial Ambassadors and their 60 rides were from the state of Oregon. Now, Bicycle La Crosse becomes the first Ambassador from the Midwest. BicycleLacrosse.com now features some of the best introductions to Driftless riding, with expanded descriptive text and photos for each Ambassador route. There's also a brand-new, mixed gravel ride: the challenging La Crosse - Nodine - La Crosse (L-N-L, or "Ell of the North"), a Paris-Roubaix style classic, with six gravel climbs mixed in with road sections along its 64 miles of Minnesota Driftless scenery.
Check in at http://www.bicyclelacrosse.com in the coming weeks as more of the Driftless Region's tried-and-true rides are added to the Ambassador list.
