SAVE THE DATE! The Manitowish Waters Solstice Festival is so much more than just one of the most beautiful organized bike rides in the state. It’s a weekend of bikes, food, music, games for kids of all ages, lakeside lounging and everything that makes the Northwoods magical.
The festival kicks off with a free sunset ride on Friday (complete with a campfire and s’mores), and really gets into gear on Saturday with both fun rides and road rides. This year the popular road rides include the 15-mile Buswell Loop Ride, 29-mile Cranberry Ride, 50-mile Half Century Ride and 100-mile full Century Ride. The 15, 29, 50 and 100 mile road rides begin at the Manitowish Waters Community Center on Hwy 51 and run along beautiful, well-marked courses with rest stops and support. A Family Fun Ride will begin at Koller Park and includes rest stops and activities at the North Lakeland Discovery Center, Camp Jorn YMCA and North Lakeland School.
All rides end at Koller Park in downtown Manitowish Waters for a post ride meal and celebration with music, food, beverages, and activities for the whole family.
