Independent Tourist will sponsor our first fully supported group tour on the Katy Trail, with a start date of Sept 8, 2018. Please cursor to “Our Tours – 2018” on the tool bar, and click “Other Tours” for more itinerary description. The tour is set for a 24 cyclist limit, in keeping with the company mission of the independent feel we are based on.

Wisconsin Cycling at It’s Best

Don’t let the short daily milage of our Wisconsin Tours stop you from discovering the great scenery that is Wisconsin. Trempealeau and Sparta have many miles of the best paved back road cycling anywhere. “Let there be no doubt: Trempealeau County may be the sweetest cycling escape you’ve never heard of “, as stated by Bicycling Magazine. The Wilton area has a great 6, or 9, mile loop circling the your lodging there.


Prince Edward Island Tours

We have added a custom tour on the Confederation Trail #21 PEI Tour. This will allow our cyclist the secure trail option (for those that do not cycle roads) but afford you a day, or two, in the Cavendish/Green Gable area. Added cost based on options. Ask Bob how to help you with keeping your choices reasonable.
