Our Covid 19 Response and Safety Measures
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 several years. Now we’d like to invite you to join our biking paradise.
Who We Are
Welcome to Around Wisconsin Bicycle Tours. The previous owners created unforgettable experiences for their many customers over the last several years and we are continuing 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. 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! Our staff is committed to providing the highest level of support and fun.
A new tour was created for 2021, Escape to the North. It was a huge success in both 2021 and 2022. The Northwest part of Wisconsin has great cycling and this is one of few tours in the area. The 2022 Northern Woods and Waters Tour
proved to be once again a perfect combination of woods, lakes and backroads.
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
Mark from Michigan – 2022
Beth from Ohio – 2022
“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, “
