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.
