My wife and I are doing the Northern Lakes route from Minneapolis to Escanaba in mid-July. What's the terrain like? :quest: We have to make 60 miles a day so if it's really hilly we might have to rethink our time frame.

I'm no authority on that part of the country, but I don't recall any bad grades.  If I were you, I'd stick with plan A and modify it later, if you see you're running out of time.

Well, like the map says, it starts out flat, then becomes rolling hills.  Nothern Wisconsin is home to some very good nordic skiers, so they need hills to train on.  

As a side note, make it a special last night out with your wife and stay at the Mill Town Inn B&B in Foster City.
