Sorry...good question.

ACA shows a route that arcs north, connecting through Conover; was wondering if there was a good direct approach.

See the North Lakes route inside Wisconsinhttp://www.adventurecycling.org/routes/RouteNetwork.pdf

Thx.

Hi Ron,

I suggest taking a look at the county and state bike maps Wisconsin has produced. They should be a great resource for planning a straighter connection between Minneapolis and Manitowoc:

http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/travel/bike-foot/countymaps.htm

Just be advised that many of their bike trails across the more rural areas are not paved. I don't recall if the maps show that your not, you'll want to check on that before planning to use them.

Have a great ride!
