CHAPTER RIDE-Septoberfest in Wabasha
September 15 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm CDT
Linda’s Ride to Septoberfest by Wabasha MN
Septoberfest is a celebration that takes place every year in Wabasha area. In 2019 this celebration will take place September 6 – October 26. Let’s take a back roads ride there to check it out. The ride will meet at the north Onalaska Kwik Trip (950 2nd Ave N) at 10:00 a.m., kickstands up at 10:30. The ride is about 80 miles, 2 hours, through Arcadia and the Wisconsin countryside (definitely not as the crow flies). If you prefer to meet us in Wabasha we should be there at 12:30 or 1:00. When we get to Wabasha we will first gas up at the Kwik Trip before finding a place to park near the festivities around 2nd and Bridge Ave (I think)
If we still want to stop for lunch after visiting Septoberfest, we will go to J & J BBQ in Nelson WI and may return by another 80 mile, 2 hour circuitous route through Dodge, etc. Heading straight south on Hwy 35 is another option if the day gets too long.
