The Door County Loop is a 3 day paved trip that explores a very unique part of Wisconsin and is high on the bucket list of many midwest riders.  This ride starts in Little Chute (Appleton) and hugs the Lake Michigan shoreline as much as possible all the way to the tip of the peninsula.  A short ferry ride takes you to Washington Island where you can explore the island’s history and view the lavender fields.  After returning from Washington Island, this route hugs the Green Bay side of the peninsula all the way back to the city of Green Bay before returning to Little Chute.


The third day of the ride also makes a stop at the Wisconsin Motorcycle Memorial.  This is a memorial park dedicated to Wisconsin Riders who have passed and it is a very beautiful and touching place.


This ride has a great mix of amazing roads and historical and natural sites.  The area was among the earliest to be settled in Wisconsin, so it has a rich history.  Fishing and shipping were among the earliest industries, so there are lots of museums and lighthouses in the area.  In addition to the historic sites, the roads are very cool and some feel very remote.


The Door County Loop also includes 8 Wisconsin Rustic Roads, and a visit to historic Lambeau Field and the Green Bay Packer Football Hall of Fame.
