Peter and I will begin our first trip of the year on June 22nd. We will begin at the Bay Beach Pavilion at Bay Beach in Green Bay with a press conference at 8:30 a.m. If you are in the area stop up to send us off.
Plans are to spend the next ten days bicycling along the Fox and Wisconsin rivers to Prairie du Chien and back. The total estimated distance is 600 miles. We are excited to be stopping to visit many of the Fox Wisconsin Heritage Parkway partners and tour their properties. Follow along to hear all about some really cool places to visit right here in Wisconsin!!
We had such a great time on our cross country trip last year we decided to continue our bicycle adventures in 2015. Our trips fill the education/encouragement component of WE BIKE, etc. We were amazed to have 6,000 people following our trip last summer and surprised at the number of people who used our trip to motivate them to get active.

Solo tandem bicyclists, Peter and Tracy Flucke of WE BIKE, etc., LLC, plan to continue their bicycle adventures in 2015. After successfully bicycling 4,362.5 miles across the country in 2014 (WE BIKE Across America Blog) the couple is excited to announce their next adventures.
For their first trip, June 22 – July 1, the Fluckes are partnering with the Fox-Wisconsin Heritage Parkway. “The ride will be approximately 600 miles round trip from Green Bay, Wisconsin to Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin and will highlight the Parkway’s history, places of interest and partners, as well as “pioneering” a land – based route” said Peter Flucke. The trip will begin with a press conference at the Bay Beach Pavilion on June 22nd at 8:30am. Their trip itinerary will be released soon.
The Fox–Wisconsin Heritage Parkway, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, works with communities along the Fox and Lower Wisconsin rivers to celebrate and preserve our rich and varied river heritage while promoting vibrant and connected riverfront towns and villages.
The Parkway follows the Lower Wisconsin, Upper Fox and Lower Fox rivers, 280 miles across the State of Wisconsin from the Mississippi to the Portage to the bay of Green Bay. “Most work to date has been focused on creating a water trail for kayaking and canoeing. We are thrilled to partner with WE BIKE to begin looking at the biking trail piece of our mission. At the end of their ride, we will have a rough route mapped and some ideas on how accommodating the communities and sites along the river are toward bikers. Very exciting!” said Candice Mortara President of the Fox-Wisconsin Heritage Parkway.
WE BIKE etc., LLC is a consulting firm specializing in the areas of engineering, education, enforcement and encouragement for walking, bicycling and healthy communities. Founded in 1993, WE BIKE conducts business nationally.
Their bicycle trips are a way to spark a sense of adventure, raise awareness, promote fitness (financial and physical), entertain and motivate.
A second trip, to begin in early fall, will travel along the Mississippi River (3,500 miles – Green Bay, Wisconsin to International Falls, Minnesota/Canadian border to Itasca State Park then down the river to New Orleans, Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico). This trip will allow the Fluckes to explore the natural beauty of the Mississippi River and cross paths with the Fox- Wisconsin Heritage Parkway.
The Flucke’s will blog and Facebook daily during their trips. During their 2014 cross country trip they had 6,000 organic followers.
