Rustic Roads Motorcycle Tour

Award program for motorcyclists

Rustic Roads are ideal for leisurely motorcycle riding. Wisconsin has a large system of lightly-traveled asphalt or gravel roads highlighting the state's natural beauty. Presently, Wisconsin has 120 marked Rustic Roads covering over 724 miles in 59 counties.

Travel at least 10 of these roads and you'll be eligible for a Rustic Roads Motorcycle Tour patch. Travel on 25 Rustic Roads or more qualifies you for a special state certificate.​

To verify participation, have your picture taken with your bike in front of the Rustic Road numbered sign. If solo, just your bike needs to be in front of the numbered sign. Once you assemble the minimum number of photos (10 or 25), forward them to the Wisconsin Motorcycle Safety Program for a patch and/or certificate. Paper or electronic photos can be submitted. There is no time limit, and group photos are acceptable. Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery.
