Take a Ride Through the Kettles
Rural Wisconsin doesn’t get any prettier than around Elkhart Lake and Kiel. A huge 180-degree bend in the Sheboygan River, the vast Sheboygan Marsh and rolling Kettle Moraine hills are backdrops for the area’s many prosperous dairy farms. The cafes and parks in Kiel and Elkhart Lake are attractions in their own right. They offer a small town hospitality that makes them perfect stopping places for bicyclists.
Top it off with the Sheboygan Marsh Park as a trail head and you have everything necessary for a wonderful bike tour. The park lodge has a restaurant too; you won’t go hungry on this ride. Your pedal through the countryside will be a roller-coaster ride over moderately steep hills, each just high enough for a fine view and speedy run down. Near Kiel, an old road has been turned into a bike and pedestrian trail with great views of the Sheboygan River.
