Fox Wisconsin Heritage Parkway

A non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement and preservation of the Fox and Wisconsin Rivers.

2015 WE BIKE, etc. Adventures – Bike the Entire Parkway

400-bike-trail-wisconsinWE BIKE, etc. specializes in pedestrian and bicycle “Consulting in the areas of Engineering, Education and Enforcement.”

Focusing improvement efforts in these areas results in improved community vitality – creating happier, healthier communities.

Peter and Tracy Flucke, of WE BIKE, etc., have planned on biking both banks of the entire Parkway system this summer, and promoting the Fox-Wisconsin Heritage Parkway, along with the WE BIKE, etc. organization. They are willing to make connections with municipalities on our behalf during the bike tour.

They will be following the Parkway from the Bay of Green Bay all the way to the Mississippi River in Prairie du Chien, returning to their starting destination following the same route, but biking the opposite side of the rivers on their return.They plan on averaging 60 miles a day to allow them to visit sites along the way.

They will also be biking the Mississippi River Trail, and will promote the Parkway on that tour as well. Don’t forget to say “HI” as they peddle past your town or destination!

We are sharing their posts on our Facebook page
