Wisconsin Door County Cycling Detailed Itinerary

Back to Tour Page

Our program assembles in Port Washington and we’ll cycle north along the Lake Michigan shoreline on Day 2. We’ll stop in Sheboygan’s harbor area for lunch — the first of many opportunities for a famous Wisconsin brat — and continue on to Manitowoc, where we’ll spend the evening at the Maritime Inn. On Day 3, we’re headed to Sturgeon Bay, considered the gateway to Door County, where we will spend the evening. Early morning of Day 4, our bike tour traces the peninsula’s eastern shore through Whitefish Dunes State Park and on to Bailey’s Harbor. Following a visit to the Cana Island Lighthouse, we’ll board a ferry across the swift currents of Porte des Mortes (Door of Death), for which the peninsula was named, to Washington Island and an overnight at Findlay’s Holiday Inn.

We’ll explore Washington Island early morning of Day 5, returning by ferry to the mainland, and then trace the peninsula’s western shoreline along Green Bay through the continuum of charming lakeside villages. We’ll visit Ellison Bay, Sister Bay, Ephraim and Fish Creek on our way to Egg Harbor, where we’ll spend the night. We’ll continue along the bay the following morning, Day 6, through Sturgeon Bay before touring the rural countryside of Kewaunee County. We’ll bike beyond Green Bay to De Pere and an overnight along the Fox River. On Day 7, we’ll continue along the region’s quiet county roads to the resort village of Elkhart Lake, the northern gateway to the Kettle Moraine. Following an overnight at the Victorian Village, we’re headed for the Kettle Moraine State Forest. We’ll cycle the Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive on our final day to the fascinating Henry Reuss Ice Age Visitor Center and explore the unique landforms carved by the Wisconsin Glacier some 10,000 years ago. We’ll return to Port Washington late-afternoon.
