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.
