Green Lake Tour de Memories

This route goes around the deepest lake in Wisconsin- Green Lake! It is filled with rolling hills and gorgeous views. The route has several viewpoints to encourage riders to slow down and take time to remember those we have lost to HIV. Halfway through the route is an LGBTQ+ secret beach that is a little known local secret. Be sure to bring nutrition and blinking lights for safety!
