    Biking, hiking or kayaking/Adventure Light — Bayfield, Wisconsin

    Summer Trips Bicycling Hiking Paddling Other Beginners welcome

    I am planning a trip to Bayfield for the weekend of July 21-23. I will rent the house that Rovers use in the winter and have room for 6-10 people depending on the mix of singles/couples. There should be biking on Madeline Island, but people are free to do whatever activities they enjoy-hiking, kayaking, shopping, wine tasting. Bayfield has a lot going on in the summertime.
