Combine miles of paved back roads, acres of woods and water, mid-summer highs in the 70’s, and what do you get? Biking in Wisconsin! That’s why we’ve been enjoying our state by bicycle for over 25 years. Now we’d like to invite you to join our biking paradise. We choose lightly traveled quiet roads,  and we cycle them all ourselves. Put the tent away. We stay in comfortable hotels and historic lodges with  dining at highly recommended local restaurants. Our small group size insures you’ll leave with a group of new bike friends. Best of all, our tours are offered at a price far below most similar companies.
