Rustic Roads Motorcycle Tour Award Program

Rustic Roads Motorcycle Tour PatchRustic 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 122 marked Rustic Roads covering over 740 miles in 61 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), send them to wirusticroads@dot.wi.gov for a patch and/or certificate.

If the attachments to the email exceed 30 MB, please submit in multiple emails, or contact wirusticorads@dot.wi.gov for an alternative delivery method. Paper photos can also be sent to the address below. Emails with photos attached are preferred. There is no time limit, and group photos are acceptable. Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery.
