Join the Madison BMW Club on May 20 - 22, 2022 for the 47th annual Great River Road Rally in beautiful Soldiers Grove Wisconsin, located at the epicenter of the best riding roads in the state!

The rally is returning to Veterans Park near the intersection of US 61 and WI 131.

We are continuing our "bare bones" event with a rally fee of just $20.  That includes:

  • 2 nights of camping
  • Rally pins and mugs to the first 250
  • All the firewood, coffee, tea and lemonade you could want
  • Likely a hot dog / brat fry on Friday night until gone (donations accepted)

Early arrivals are always welcome: Just pay the nightly camping fee at the Village Offices or Mobil station. Electrical hookups are available throughout the rally site. RV sites with water and electric are available for an extra charge. There are motel options close by, so check out our lodging section.

Soldiers Grove and the Surrounding Area

This small town is located at the intersections of highways US 61 and WI 131. The rally site is at Beauford T. Anderson Park (aka Veteran's Park), along the banks of the Kickapoo River on the western outskirts of town. Check out the Rally Site Map.

This area of Wisconsin is absolutely beautiful, and lots of people like to come here for a weekend retreat! We encourage you to take a look at some of these sites and find out why the driftless region of Wisconsin is listed time after time as some of the best riding in the Midwest. Deep-carved river valleys and high hills make for many rides over gravel and paved areas, all curvy and with varied terrain. Visit for more information.
