Laura & Cory Anders along with our friendly Island staff invite you to stop in at Island Rides Bicycle Rentals for a truly enjoyable Door County Island experience. Your first part of the journey brings you by Ferry to the Island. Touring Washington Island the old-fashioned way... foot & pedal, has been compared by some to a peaceful State Park feeling as you ride along our majestic tree lined roadways, the golden wheat fields of Death's Door Spirits & miles of scenic shorelines.
Not bringing your car... we'll arrange to get you to the Dor Cros Inn (advance reservations for fastest pick-up). Call us at 920-847-2126 is the quickest way to begin your Island journey with us. Need bicycles at your Island cottage for a week, no problem... we have weekly rates as well. If your coming by plane to the airport we deliver for a small fee (all rates below).
NOTE: All our rentals come with "Peace of Mind" roadside assistance... we're only a phone call or text away (our #'s on each bicycle basket).
It is easy to lose yourself on the Island for hours…starting with our laid out guided tour (the hills mostly in your favor), followed by the many sweet treat stops strategically planted along your route. Have a deli sandwich made to order for your picnic from one of the Islands’ local restaurants like Jackson Harbor Soup, Island Café & Bread Co. or Fragrant Isle Lavender Farm.
If you find you need a rest and want to pick up your journey the following day we are conveniently located on the Dor Cros Inn property for lodging...decide to check in for a night or two and we will take 5% off your nightly rate.
The Island is a community steeped in history beginning as early as 1635, Washington Island has been a part of maritime and commercial history in the greatest of the Great Lakes, Lake Michigan. Settled in 1850, Washington Island is the second oldest Icelandic settlement in America. Then, and now, Washington Island offers those who visit, natural wonders along with contemporary pleasures, a quiet tranquility of peaceful surroundings and a friendly community.
This is truly a paradise for bikers. While touring for the day or the week discover a favorite fishing hole, sailing spot or take a dive into our pristine swimming waters. Just some of the simple pleasures at your finger tips. While cruising on our bicycles visit unique museums to learn of our history. Like the Farm Museum with it's resident farm animals for all to enjoy and feed. Take time to set the bicycle a side and jump on the passenger ferry, the "Karfi", to explore the many trails of Rock Island State Park along with the first Wisconsin lighthouse (oldest in these waters) the Potawatomi. Take in an art show, theater or musical performance. Browse shops offering distinctive Island products and regional artist's creations. Enjoy a round of golf or mini golf. Treat yourself to delicious eats at one of our fine restaurants, experiencing foods that are unique to our area including one of our famous fish boils. Try a tasty brew or breads made from our local grain. At the end of the day stop back at the Dor Cros Inn... decide to check in for a night or two and we will take 5% off (not valid during July/Aug) your nightly rate just for riding with us.
