Flavors of Wisconsin

July 16 -22, 2017 

Tour is full. Please call or email to be placed on the waiting list.

 Cycle for six days on a moderate to challenging road route through the scenic vistas of south central Wisconsin. Visit cheese factories and microbreweries. Watch cheese being made and pair one of its many varieties with just the right craft beer.

The 2017 tour will be a seven day tour (six riding days) with plenty of cheese and beer. Don’t let the modest mileage fool you. There are hills on this route which are sure to make that end-of-ride brew a welcome sight! We’re kicking it off with a beer and cheese pairing event at a popular Madison brewpub. New for 2017 we’ll be spending an extra day in Galena to give riders the choice of a rest day or a shorter ride to the Sinsinawa Mound followed by a visit to the National Brewery Museum and Whispering Bluffs Winery in Potosi. If you’ve ridden the Flavors in the past few years, the 2017 route may seem brand new as we are traveling in the opposite direction, so we hope you’ll join us again for another great Flavors of Wisconsin Tour in 2017!

We will stay six nights in hotels, historic inns, and B & B’s  (see lodging note below) in the towns of Fitchburg (Madison suburb), Mineral Point, Galena, IL, Monroe, and New Glarus. In addition to lodging, the tour price includes five restaurant dinners, six breakfasts, rest stops stocked with Wisconsin craft cheese, fresh fruit, and other goodies. Also included are luggage handling, brewery and cheese tour fees, SAG, maps, cue sheets, marked route, and all the pampering that only a small group tour can provide!

Complimentary airport pick up and drop off at the Dane County Regional Airport in Madison, WI can be arranged with the starting location hotel. If  necessary, we can help you arrange bike rental at a local shop (bike rental fee not included). Please call or email to discuss these services.

LODGING NOTE: On the night we spend in historic inns in Mineral Point, it may be necessary for two bedrooms to share one bathroom (i.e. four people sharing one bathroom). Our past riders have found this to be a great way to get to know the other riders and we believe the quality of the lodging more than makes up for this slight inconvenience. Hotel rooms always assume private bathrooms. All lodging is of good quality. In a few towns, however, rooms may differ slightly in desirability (i.e. location, furnishings, amenities), in which case we will assign rooms in the order in which we receive registrations. 

Tour does NOT include transportation to/from start of ride, lunches, dinner for one night, alcoholic beverages (except at cheese and microbrew pairing ),cost of bike rental, or repairs from local bike shops.

* Price assumes double share (two sharing a room). Add $450 for a private room.  If you are traveling alone and would prefer to double share, we will attempt to find you a suitable roommate, but we cannot guarantee a roommate for you. Without a roommate, the private room charge will be applied to your balance due. Call about possible triple share (three sharing a room) at a reduced rate (limited availability.)

*Price for registrations received after April 15: $900

 Note: Due to the nature of the off-bike activities, no one under 21 will be allowed on this tour.
