The summer "Tour De Marsh Kick-off" ride is an event for outdoor enthusiasts which incorporates the beauty of the Horicon Marsh and the charm of small towns and food. Horicon Marsh has been named one of the "sever wonders of Wisconsin" and a "wetland of International importance". Seeing and experiencing Horicon Marsh by bicycle provides opportunity to enjoy one of nature’s great treasures.
There are five start/rest stations for cyclists and drivers will be set up along the route. Each starting/rest stop will have parking, refreshments, maps, information cards, stamp cards and restrooms available. A map/brochure is available in advance or on the day of the event. Participants can start at any one of the five stations and then proceed on their tour. Every participant who gets his card stamped at each of the five start/rest stops will be entered into a drawing. Riders can vary their ride from 8 miles to 38 miles in length.
Guided tours at 9am and 10:30am are happening on the north end of the marsh off of highway 49 at the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge.
