Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin

The most fun you'll have on a bike in the Northwoods!


Whether preparing for Ride Across Wisconsin or simply getting the family out for an amazing day on the trails, the Solstice Festival has something for everyone.


Even better, every dollar raised from this annual event goes towards improving cycling safety in our community and funding a fleet of adaptative cycles which are FREE for community use.


After a morning on the trails, stick around for a party in the park, featuring live music, food, drinks and more.
