Northern Woods & Waters

August 5 – 11, 2018

 Six openings  available.  

 Cycle for six days on lightly traveled back roads through the woods of northern Wisconsin, past quiet lakes too numerous to count. Paddle a kayak on a quiet lake and enjoy a pontoon tour on Lake Minocqua!

The 2018 tour showcases the many miles of asphalt bicycle trails that Vilas County has been constructing for the past fifteen years in it’s effort to add bicyclists to the group of sports enthusiasts who are already fans of this popular northern county. Over 50 miles of this 300 mile tour take place on the trails, which wind through the Northern Highland American Legion State Forest past campgrounds and lakeside beaches. Wildlife sightings are common each day. Once again we are offering the the pedal and paddle option on day five. This option allows you to bike a shortened route in the morning and kayak a northern lake in the afternoon.*  We stay overnight in popular tourist towns at locations offering swimming opportunities, and in St. Germain on days three and four, the free use of canoes and kayaks. We energize for our bicycle adventure each day with hearty buffet breakfasts (restaurant prepared buffets, NOT chain hotel continental) and delicious restaurant dinners. As in 2017, we are spending two days in the deluxe lake front condos at the Black Bear Resort in St. Germain. This allows riders to choose a day to just enjoy the watercraft and swimming beach at the resort, or do a round trip bike ride to explore the town of Minocqua and take a pontoon boat tour of the lake it is built upon.  Due to the popularity of the area during the summer months, this tour fills early, so don’t wait to register!

*Paddle option available for $35 additional fee and must be elected at time of registration. Transport of kayaks and cyclists to the lake is provided. The kayak activity (limited to first 24 people to sign up) is not a guided tour. It is assumed that those choosing this option will have kayaking experience as no instruction will be given. Due to the kayak rental business’s policies, no refunds are available in case of cancellation for bad weather.

Lodging Note: All lodging is of good quality. In a few towns, however, rooms may differ slightly (i.e. location and furnishings), in which case we will assign rooms in the order in which we receive registrations. At the Black Bear Resort on Little Lake Germain, half of the group will have their private bathroom located next door to their room rather than within it, and two bedrooms (four people) will be located within one deluxe waterfront condo. We believe this small inconvenience is more than made up for by the outstanding quality of this resort.
