Decorah to Waukon on Old Stage Road (A52)


Distance: 14 miles

Time: 19 minutes

Ride Rating

Old Stage Road is an example of the road less traveled is better

The Road

From highway 9 on the southeast side of Decorah, turn onto Old Stage Road which turns off to the east under a mile up the road. Follow A52 (Old Stage Road) to Old Highway 9 all the way into Waukon. If you want to avoid Waukon, you can turn south to Highway 9 about 2 miles west of town.

The Ride

This is a short ride, but it has some fun curves in it on the Decorah side. The curves turn back and forth on hills that sometimes require downshifting and then has some long sweeping curves that will lean your bike quite nicely.

The Bottom Line

Highway 9 is pretty much a straight shot, so you might as well get off the beaten path and take a fun little back road. Why the hell else are you riding?
