The route of 41 miles to Vevay will have two hills of about 6% grade taking you away from the river.  They’ll be a 16 mile optional loop at Vevay, and then all routes will return along the river (flat) to Madison.  For those wishing to avoid any hills, you may do an out-n-back along the river for any distance you choose.

Bonus Dairy Queen Ride – Ride across the bridge to the Milton Dairy Queen with an optional 20 mile out-n-back west along the Ohio River.  You can do this route anytime at your convenience.
