Description

LET'S JOURNEY!

Join us for a three-day excursion that includes scenic Driftless area views and an active biking experience nestled beside the beautiful Mississippi River, on the Great River Road. This weekend tour allows you to ride through some of the most beautiful landscapes that Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa have to offer, and it doesn’t end there. You’ll bike and enjoy beer tastings, local community charm, and great food each day.

Each day we’ll explore on roads, bike paths, and trails at a casual pace. You’ll get unbelievable views of the Mississippi River using the freedom of bicycles to explore. All of our tour guides possess threefold expertise in beer, cycling, and local insight. At the end of each afternoon, you will be welcomed back to Potosi Brewing Company for an evening of celebration including local food, music, games, competition and of course great Craft Beer.

We invite you to join us on our Potosi Tour de Pints event, a bike and brews expedition.
