Rider Support

8 staffed rest stops (with home-baked goods, drinks and fruit); one in Cornucopia sponsored by the Cornucopia Business Association.

 2 additional self serve water stops.

We also have support vehicles driving back and forth through all segments of the routes to assist riders.

This a fully supported ride with route map, support vehicles, and food/beverage stops en-route and at the finish. Some routes overlap so you can decide to shorten or lengthen your ride as you wish.

The 19 & 34 mi loops include a rest stop at beautiful Long Lake. Pack your swim suit & small towel; take a dip before continuing on!

The 40 mile out-and-back includes 5 fully stocked rest stops.

The 52, 70 and 100 mi loops overlap and host rest stops to satisfy all your energy and hydration needs.  These routes take the rider on 20 miles of some of the smoothest, sweetest blacktop in Northern Wisconsin through the Chequamegon Nicolet NationalForest and the famed Moquah Barrens.

All routes have continuous sag (mechanical) support.

This is a RIDE not a race.  Fun, friends & food is our motto!  Ride held rain or shine.  No refunds.

The Routes

The 13 mile route is hilly, but children as young as 10 years have completed it. Rest stops available at mile 5 and 8.

The 19 & 34 mi loops include a stop at Long Lake. Pack a swim suit & small towel and take a dip before continuing!

The 40 mi “out & back” and 100 mi (century) loop include biking past scenic Siskiwit Falls and a rest stop at the Town of Bell Lakeside Park in the quaint fishing village of Cornucopia. Bring your camera! Go for a swim & fill your bottles with fresh artesian water at this stop.

The 52, 70 and 100 mi loops take riders through the famed Moquah Barrens, over 20 miles of some of the sweetest, smoothest blacktop in the beautiful Chequamegon Nicolet National Forest.

SVBT Highlights:

We continue to be committed to supporting the sustainability goals of Chequamegon Bay’s eco-municipalities. This means we will incorporate the use of recycled, bio-degradable, organic, GMO-free, non-toxic, and/or recyclable materials in every practical way. We review progress towards an ever higher standard of sustainability in tour operations on an annual basis. The event will continue to be family friendly, with group starts, multiple support vehicles, food and beverage stops, fun & food at the finish. This includes locally made ice cream and baked goods, locally grown strawberries, music, swimming and hot showers available for .75 cents at the Thompson West End Campground. (Camping  is available on a first come first serve basis).

The first rest stop on the tour will be in full rockin party mode to get you pumped with cool music, treats and all sorts of fun! Please stop and say Hello!
