Map covers the Milwaukee region from the Illinois State Line to Port Washington and west to Oconomowoc. It directs cyclists to roads deemed by a local researcher to be the best route option in an area. These routes were selected and field-tested by one of Milwaukee's most avid bicycle explorers, then checked by other experienced bicyclists. it is a little less complicated to use than the state map for that reason. You will find unique local roads and little-known bike trails for great recreational riding plus direct, bike-friendly routes to get you to work and back or through your daily errands. All of it is laid out in an easy-to-read network of roads and trails that will take you where you want to go.
Map divides the state into four sections and rates the roads based on conditions like posted speed limits and the number of cars per day. It also shows off-street trails and rural roads with paved shoulders. The Southeast section covers an area from Madison to Milwaukee and from the Illinois border to Door County. This map offers the lots of information for cyclists to make their own choices based on road type. And although it is improved over previous versions, because of its scale, it cannot offer as detailed information about roads in the urban areas.
