Wisconsin State Bike Map

The 2010 Wisconsin State Bike Map is a set of eight (8) maps published and distributed through the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin with information provided by WisDOT. This map classifies state and county roads through out the state in terms of bicycling conditions. It also identifies bicycle trails and mountain bike facilities, and provides contacts for local bicycle route information. Town roads are not rated for their bicycling conditions but are identified with their road names and surface type.

Wisconsin county bike maps

WisDOT also has downloadable bike maps for each of Wisconsin's 72 counties. These county maps come from the 2010 Wisconsin State Bike Map. Each county map highlights the most favorable bicycling conditions while presenting the full continuum of roadways - from narrow town roads to US Highways. This approach enables cyclists of all abilities to select their own routes to meet their individual transportation and recreational needs.

Urban bike maps

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is developing urban bike maps for Wisconsin municipalities with populations greater than 25,000.

Local bike maps

Information about local bicycle maps and routes is available on this WisDOT web site. Some of the bike maps created by Wisconsin counties and communities can be downloaded while contact information is provided for others.    

Great River Road Bicycle Map

The Great River Road Bicycle Map (July 2012) depicts conditions for bicycling on the Great River Road and nearby roadways. Touring cyclists can ride the entire Wisconsin segment or choose smaller segments that are better suited to their experience level.

Other Wisconsin bicycle maps/guides

The Department of Tourism offers the Wisconsin Biking Guide, a detailed guide showing bike touring trails, on-road routes and mountain bike trail systems.  The guide is free from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism and can be either downloaded as a PDF, or requested to be sent to you by mail.

The Department of Tourism also provides information about Wisconsin bike trails and bike routes on their Web site. The most complete offering of the state's touring trails, including nearly every rail-trail, is available. Select maps of on-road loops and mountain biking single track trails are also provided.

The Department of Natural Resources also provides abundant information about trails in the state.
