Intro to Road Touring – Wisconsin
As the experts on self-contained bicycle travel, we’d like to share our knowledge by offering our Introduction to Road Touring (IRT) course. Two days of open-air, informal campground discussions — including the classic panniers vs. trailer debate — will be followed by a fun, four-day tour around the rural roads of America’s dairylands. We’ll spin by historic barns, old stone houses, and pioneer cemeteries. As you test ride what you’ve learned in camp, you’ll pedal Wisconsin’s ice age geologic past and explore Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive and the shores of Lake Michigan. The superb riding route features flat to rolling terrain including some steep climbs on quiet, paved country roads with small, rural communities.
Note that you’ll need to come to this intro course with some cycling skills and experience under your belt. But after graduating, you’ll be ready to hit the road on a loaded tour, whether it’s a solo outing, a trip with friends, or another Adventure Cycling group tour! Upon completion, you will qualify for our Learn and Earn tour incentive!
“It was great to meet people from different places and experiences who are all drawn to touring. Having that common thread put us all at ease right away.”
