So I FINALLY got my patch for completing 10 of the 117 Wisconsin Rustic Roads. It took forever to get since we did the rides back in August and sent in for it immediately... once I hit 25, they will send me a certificate.



Is this unique to my area or do you guys have rides that you can do to earn patches, pins, certificates, etc.?

US Rider News has one similar for Georgia travelers...
You have to get a picture of the towns mentioned name along with your Bike...
World Traveler is the patch name ...
Towns in GA have world renown names like Athens, Buena Vista, Cairo, etc...
Visit 5 with proof , get the patch...
I plan to get my 5 in a days ride...

CONGRATULATIONS on your achievement :D

I live about 10 miles from a WI rustic road. I have ridden a lot more than 10 of them but I never knew there was a patch.

I have only ridden one of WI rustic roads, I believe its Snake Road, its just west of Lake Geneva. I did not take a pic as I did not know about the patch at the time. Next time I will make sure to get the pic.

You need to "get the program" and dig out the pics, if you want your patch...
:D :D :D :) ;)
Geneva is another one of the names I couldn`t remember last night while posting...

I never took pics. I'm already planning on doing them this summer and getting the patch.

Most of the ones I have rode on are southwest WI. There are a few I ride regularly going to lunch.

No need to get in a hurry...
I cannot enjoy the journey to the destination, IF I hurry...

I broke out the US Rider News yesterday to get a list of towns, I`ll study it until you`re riding weather returns...
> Then maybe we can get our patches together from different sources for the same purpose...

Think of it as a GET OUT AND RIDE * HSN Unity (?)...

I like the idea, Anyone else want in??

Count me in "Captain D". Would it be possible to get a list of the Georgia towns involved? I know I am close to 2 international towns: Rome and Athens.

Yeah, I`ll get these posted here...
BUT, pull up US Rider News magazine, they are common to your locality sections, such as Georgia has a section in the magazine...

Included are international cities names >
Athens, Augusta, Berlin, Bethlehem, Budipest, Buena Vista, Cairo, Denmark, Dublin, Egypt, Geneva, Lebanon, Rhine, Rome, Scotland, Smyrna, Milan, & Vienna...

But 6 towns are the number and once you get your patch, you receive a rocker for completing 6 more...
www.usridernews.com for more...

Lets get together on this as a whole, HSN & MAYBE we Georgia riders can meet and get a few towns together ...

Rustic Roads

There was a guy on a Wisconsin Riders forum that rode EVERY Rustic road in the state, all in one year.:D
It might not seem that hard, but almost 120 roads in a state that has winter 6 months out of the year was not an easy task.:wink:
Especially not being retired and having to work.:sad:

That's a lot of riding. You can do more than one a day though. Some are fairly close.
