WHITE RIVER TRAIL
The White River Trail is a scenic, multi-use trail in Walworth County along a former railroad bed that allows visitors to bike, hike and even ride on horseback. All cyclists 16 years and older need a trail pass — $5 for the day or $25 for the year — that
can be purchased at any trail access location.
AVANT CYCLE CAFÉ
Avant Cycle Café in downtown Lake Geneva is a gathering place for coffee and bike enthusiasts alike. The experts here offer bike services such as tune-ups, new bike sales and pedal-assist e-bike rentals. Avant Cycle Café also hosts a variety of group bike rides throughout the week and posts suggested local biking routes on its website, including the 20-mile “Around the Lake,” which will take you past both Geneva Lake and Lake Como.
