Our Story

Who We Are

Welcome to the new “Around Wisconsin Bicycle Tours”. We are Mary Jo and Joe, the new owners. Pat and Ken the previous owners created unforgettable experiences for their many customers over the last several years. We will carry out this long term tradition. Our family has resided in Northern Wisconsin for the past 35 years and is very familiar with the back roads and the many amenities available in small towns in Wisconsin. As well we have lived in Southeast and West Central Wisconsin which allowed us to log thousands of miles in every corner of Wisconsin. Being long term cyclists, we have ridden in many day and multiday bicycle tours. Twice we participated on the Northern Woods and Water tour and as well on the Flavors tour so we know the tours well. Why should you care? Because after years of being the tour customer, we know what makes or breaks a great bicycle vacation, and we are putting our experience to work for you to create a fun, unforgettable trip! For 2021, a new tour, Escape to the North has been added. The Northwest part of Wisconsin has great cycling and this is the first tour in this area.

We are a proud member of the Bicycle Tour Network, Adventure Cycling Association, People for Bikes, Wisconsin Bicycle Federation and our local bike club, Antigo Bike and Ski Club.

What we Do

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 ensures 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. Check out what our riders are saying about us on our testimonial page and then visit our tour page for more info on our upcoming tours.

What People are Saying

We had a great time on the Northern Woods and Waters Tour last week. The food, accommodation, roads, routes, and yes, even the weather, were wonderful. We marveled at your ability to guide us over nearly flawless roads. We enjoyed Captain Steve’s pirate cruise where we saw two eagles and three eagle’s nest. The gathering at the Minocqua Brewery on the last night was especially fun.

Rick from Wisconsin

We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the rolling hills on the Wisconsin backroads. It was a good route. The food was great and we enjoyed getting to know lots of adventurous people. In appreciation, “
