A fabulous tour of a beautiful part of the country. Back roads, lakes everywhere you look. The tour support was top notch – everyone was very helpful and dedicated to making sure we all had a great experience. Accommodations were nice, meals were tasty, rest stoops full of great snacks to keep you going. The cost of the trip was a big factor in my deciding to go – much less expensive than other similar length tours, but nothing was done on the cheap. If you haven't been to this part of the country on a bike trip – this is definitely one to put on your list.

Pam from Pennsylvania – 2023

So relaxing! Beautiful roads and trails, rivers and lakes. It wasn’t long enough! First trip in a long time that I wasn’t eager to get home.

Leslie from Missouri – 2023

This is a great tour! Mary Jo and staff go above and beyond. The scenery is beautiful and the quiet country roads are delightful. I loved everything about this tour. Put this one on your list! Very fun.

Candace from West Virginia – 2023

The tour experience is like having a ride designed and delivered by very good friends. I highly recommend it.

Susan from Missouri – 2023

You and your crew were wonderful. All were so helpful and cheerful and yet they did not try and call attention to themselves. Many thanks to all! Support was unobtrusive and gave us all a secure feeling. I also want to compliment you on designing a safe, colorful, and quaint tour. I had not done upper Wisconsin before and thoroughly loved it. The roads were so beautifully smooth and bikeable!   Quite different in many ways from upper Michigan. Both beautiful in their own ways.

David from Michigan – 2022

Thanks for a great week. I really appreciate a week of just riding and having everything else taken care of. Very relaxing. Your staff was amazing. You must be very special to have so many people helping you with your tours.
Thanks again for an affordable tour.

Debra from Ohio – 2022

What a great ride. Wonderful roads to bike on. You ride at your own pace and can take the time to stop and view beautiful scenery along the way. All you have to do is peddle. Everything is taken care of for you. Your accommodations are comfortable and relaxing. The staff ensure you are well taken care of. Mary Jo does a great job of picking nice routes and ensuring that you have a great experience. Can’t say enough about how well we were treated. Will definitely do another tour.

Maria from Ohio – 2022

This was a beautiful adventure. The weather was perfect, there were lots of rolling hills, and a nice combination of sun and shade on every ride. The entire staff was super friendly and helpful, and Megan's mid week yoga class came at just the right time. I'm already looking forward to next year.

Knut from Illinois – 2022

This was my first bike tour. It was great!!!

Tammy from Ohio – 2022

It was a wonderful week of riding on scenic, low-traffic roads and paved trails. Everything was well organized with a delightful crew that was extremely helpful. I'd definitely come back for a future ride!

Anne from Michigan – 2022

The Woods and Waters Tour was very well done. Mary Jo and her staff chose excellent accomodations and the meals were wonderful. The routes were over road surfaces that ranged from good to nearly perfect. We will definitely sign up for next year’s tour.

Ann and Steve from West Virginia – 2021

My husband and I drove from California to attend this terrific cycling event. Once we arrived in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, Mary Jo and her staff took wonderful care of us all. This was a 6 day cycling tour. Mary Jo arranged for all of our hotels and provided us each day with breakfast and dinner. The participants were given daily route sheets and there were planned rest stops along the routes. A staff member cycled every day along the routes to assure that everyone was safe. There was also a staff member who drove around as the sag person. During the middle of the trip, we spent 2 days at a beautiful resort on Eagle Lake. While we were there, we had the option to cycle, swim , relax or do whatever we chose. I only have positive things to say about this fabulous trip. This was the second time that we did this trip. Our first trip was in August 2018. The participants, Mary Jo and her staff were all really wonderful people too. I would highly recommend this trip.

Cynthia and Bill from California – 2021

Thanks Mary Jo for the great tour. You and the staff were very accommodating and fun to be with. The routes were fantastic, taking us on back country roads and along lakes. It was a great way to see the area. The extra activities in the afternoon allowed us to get to know the other participants. Looking forward to next bike tour.

Susan from Wisconsin 2021

I want to congratulate you on one of the best run bike trips I have been on. This trip had everything. On the road there were great routes with plenty of information on how to navigate them, beautiful scenery and quiet roads, conscientious and visible SAG support, and healthy snacks available at rest stops. The places we stayed were beautiful and the food was very good throughout the entire trip. You even had activities planned for us when there was time, like the Lumberjack show in Hayward and the pontoon ride. Wow! I have to admit I could get used to no tent set up and take down and the Ride with GPS! Everyone on the staff was wonderful. They really cared about our welfare and enjoyment of the trip. They were so nice to me, asking me to join them at a table when I couldn’t figure out where to sit as a solo traveler. I really appreciated that. The yoga was wonderful.

Mariette, St Paul, Mn, 2021
 

In the past I have only done self supported tours, or organized trips with camping or staying in school gymnasiums for accommodations, so this seemed very luxurious. The hotels and their staff were all friendly and well put together.  I liked having plans for where to put  the bikes each night.  Dinners were great.  Tour staff was great–helpful, encouraging and fun.  The snacks provided at the rest stops were just what was needed and plentiful.   All in all, it was very well organized, with every detail taken into account.  I would recommend it to anyone considering doing a supported bike tour. Great trip!

Kathy from Wisconsin

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
