From the website (https://www.rideacrosswisconsin.com/ride-overview/) it looks like a 225 mile route which is done either in one day, or in two days of 135 miles + 90 miles. Also looks like a supported ride with transport of luggage. I assume OP is thinking of the two-day option.

I don't have a complete training plan, but in general on something like this, I like to work up to rides of 60% of the distance, i.e. 60% x 135 ~= 80 miles in advance to make sure I'm going to be comfortable with two days of riding and I'd take the weekend immediately before somewhat easy. I would also take advantage of long hours of daylight to avoid having to push it too hard on the ride.
