My wife's from this area and, after falling for her, I subsequently "fell" for bike rides around her house. The landscape is a-ma-zing for epic, scenic, rolling, curving rides. I'm amazed to discover that there aren't [yet] any epic gravel races in this area (that I know of, at least). I don't see much chatter anywhere....club rides, fun rides, races, etc. making good use of all these stunning backroads. 

Anyone have info on rides, races, routes, in Sauk County (or surrounding counties) that I'm not seeing!!?

Wildside in Baraboo does two weekly rides - fun group of people with a good knowledge of the area.

Unfortunately there are very few gravel roads in Sauk County... But I notice you enjoy Mountain Biking - The Wildside guys put a LOT of effort into Devil's Head mountain bike trails, little more on the enduro/all mountain style of riding, check those out this summer.  Devil's Head (<10miles southeast of Baraboo) is a ski resort, so bike up or take the chair lift, your call!  Also, Mirror Lake State Park (about 15miles northwest of Baraboo) has some amazing XC/single track if that's more your style.  I would say you could even ride a gravel bike on some of the trails, just watch out for the occasional sand pit.
