Guided Rides
FRIDAY - 5:00 pm


Start off the Rally with a bang and Ride On through 3 states, along the mighty Mississippi and over one of the States’ most notorious bridges.  Join us and Local Chapters of The American Legion Riders at Rod’s Ride On Powersports (4140 Mormon Coulee Court) for a quick ride with fantastic views of the Mississippi River Valley, with one organized stop along the way at Shep’s Riverside Bar & Grill in Lansing, IA. The return trip follows the Iowa/Minnesota Great River Road, back into Wisconsin and to the Big River Rally Festgrounds.


There are a number of small towns and overlooks along the way.  Feel free to stop for pictures, amazing scenery, and plentiful wildlife.  Not to mention some pretty fantastic roads to… (ahem) Ride On.  Get it?  RIDE ON?!?  Powersports… (sorry)  Don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of time to check out the party and all of the Live Music including Buckcherry!


We’ll also be collecting donations for Freedom Honor Flight

This is One.  Big.  Ride.


Join Wisconsin sports radio legend “The Big Unit” Bill Michaels and Jesse Jame Dupree from Jackyl as we ride to the Hillsboro Brewing Company.  Try our New Official Beer; The Big River Rally Sweeper… right form the source!  But first, we’ll start off with a little Whiskey.  Jesse James DuPree will be doing bottle signing of his America’s Outlaw Bourbon preceding the ride at Great River Harley Davidson (1116 Oak Forest Drive, Onalaska)


We begin with a tour of the La Crosse Driftless Bluff Country with a stop at Stockyard Grill & Saloon in Coon Valley. Follow along through our Wisconsin Nordic Dairyland Region and navigate the Kickapoo River Valley to the Wisco-famous Rockton Bar, a classic biker roadhouse.  The next leg takes you to the Hillsboro Brewing Company Come hungry and feel free to try the BRR Sweeper or any of their other excellent brews.  The return trip brings you through Wildcat Mountain State Park, with a truly EPIC view, and some ridiculously curvy, and steep grades. Next up is Peck’s Corner; a classic Wisconsin Dive Bar in the middle of Amish Country.  Keep an eye out for horses and buggies (and what they leave behind 💩) Please show respect if you see any.  The final leg is up and over bluff country, back into La Crosse for Day 2, and the remainder of the Big River Rally.


We’ll also be collecting donations for Children’s Miracle Network
