pretty nice route. The part in the state park on 67 is nice with some "twisties", a lot markes at 45 mph turns and a couple at 25 wich is nice since you can easily double it on a bike. I only started and ended in is janeville but I would still recomend SW Wisc. But any Wisconsin road beats our Illinois roads. Thanks for posting this route!

I was actually born up in this area, Hebron WI to be exact, so I spend a lot of time up in there. On RT 12 you can turn off a road called Taramak, and it will run you into Palmyra. It is a really beautify side path with some nice little turns in it. It will also run you into Palmyra, and you can stop in town for a bite to eat, or a break. You can can then jump on hwy 106 and that will run you to either Jefferson or Fort Atkinson.
