Biking enthusiasts have numerous opportunities to take to the road and enjoy the beautiful Wisconsin countryside in and around the Lake Geneva area.
Take to the streets around Lake Geneva
The Lake Geneva Bike Paths, with five different, color-coded segments, offers bikers a choice in routes throughout the community. The Blue Route begins near Lake Geneva Middle School on N. Bloomfield Road and winds northwest emerging into downtown Lake Geneva, offering picturesque views of the White River along the way.
Branching off of the Blue Route are both the Green Route and Yellow Route. For a scenic ride through forest laden wetlands, take the Yellow Route. Veterans Park is the final destination when you take the Green Route, biking along Townline Road to this city park, where you’ll find playgrounds, walking paths and softball fields.
The Red Route runs north/south, parallel to State Route 120. Biking this trail provides easy access to the east side of Lake Geneva and area residences and businesses along the route, including the large retail outlets along N. Edwards Boulevard.
Looking for a quick ride, then the Brown Route, the shortest of the paths, is the one for you, crossing in front of Lake Geneva Middle School.
