Laura & Cory Anders 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 or in Justin & Beth's case by plane 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.

It is easy to lose yourself on the Island for hours…starting with our laid out guided tour (the hills 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 the Danish Mill or Fragrant Isle. 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. Coming to the Island without your car... no problem we *deliver free to the Ferry dock area.

bikes.jpgThe 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 truely 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 bikes 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 bike 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 and oldest in these waters, the Potawatomi. Take in an art show, theatre 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 10% off your nightly rate just for riding with us.
