RAGBRAI LI Day Passes are still available!

Driving into and leaving Lansing

I need some local help, I’m traveling from the North East. What is the best way to get into Lansing?
I have the directions from the town but there has to be a better way. Can anyone tell me where to go, nicely?
It seems like taking Highway 9 to Waukon and the 76 North is the only option they are posting. Thanks

I’m not local, but I can tell you about the last time Ragbrai went to Lansing. I took the Great River Road into Lansing before the ride started last time. On the way out of town, I took Highway 9 to Waukon.

Hey cwmurray:

We’re NorthEastern too! :) New Jersey was home the last time we drove to Lansing.
Our route out to Lansing last time: 80 to 90 outside of Chicago, then 90 to 18W outside of Madison, WI, to 35N in Prairie DuChien, to the Route 82 bridge, which crosses the river into Lansing. Prettymuch what Google Maps suggested. 18W wasn’t bad at all. Still a long drive, but not a bad drive.

Our alternate was Route 20 out by Rockford and come in from the south.

See you…er.r…soon!
