Biking In The Holcombe Area
For those who like easy riding...
The river valleys offer many scenic and fairly flat, easy miles of routes. Most days you will not see a vehicle on the roads and the ones you do are very accommodating. The Old Abe bike trail is also in the area which is a 19.5 mile stretch of paved railroad bed, making for an even easier and family friendly experience.
For those who like a challenge...
The Driftless area makes for some extremely challenging climbs. There are two different and distinct hilly areas near Holcombe, the Ice Age Trail area and the Blue Hills area. If you are looking for a truly challenging road coarse, you can find one here. The Driftless area to the south offers winding hills that will test your descending skills on the way down as well as test your mental stamina. It hurts when you think the hill will be over just around the corner and then when you reach it, it kicks up even steeper. By contrast the Blue Hills offer longer, generally straight climbs with a steady incline. This makes for some seriously grinding climbs with beautiful views on the descent.
