Transition Announcement

Hello everyone! My name is Rob Layton and I am the owner of Bicycle Illinois and now, also Bike Wisconsin. We are extremely excited to announce that Bicycle Illinios and Bike Wisconsin are now one company and we will be operating the GRABAAWR, SAGBRAW, and Bike Northwoods tours beginning next season!

Adding Bike Wisconsin’s tours to our existing events will be a perfect fit for both us and you! "Bicycle Illinois has a similar mission and a proven track record of creating and running very similar bike tours and events," said Eric and Kathy Schramm, the previous Bike Wisconsin ride directors. "We are glad to know Bike Wisconsin will continue and is in very capable hands."

Moving forward we plan to work closely with Eric and Kathy to ensure a smooth transition, and improve upon the wonderful collection of events they have built over the past 10 years. We will also incorporate the best things about Bicycle Illinois and Bike Wisconsin into our all of our events.

Joining our team as the ride director of Bike Wisconsin is Wil Kelley. Many of you may already know Wil since he provided ride support for all three events as the tour mechanic for the past few years. His previous experience with the events directly on the road, as well as his existing bonds with many riders, will be a great addition to our growing team. You’ll be able to reach Wil at wil.kelley@bikewisconsin.com or (888) BIKE-WI-1 [245-3941].

The schedule for the 2017 Bike Wisconsin events is listed on our home page. We will also be sending out more information about all the events as they come together, including a completely redesigned www.bikewisconsin.com. In the meantime, Please feel free to contact Wil or me with your questions, ideas, and feedback as we work to develop these world class cycling events.

Thank you for your patience - it will be worth it! We look forward to you riding with us next summer!
