Amish Community Tour

  • May 25, 2013 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for a ride through the Amish community to the northeast of Madison. Our ride will include several stops at various Amish stores and shops, including a general store, a wood shop, a buggy shop, a bent & dent and a bakery. The route is 32 miles and follows lightly-traveled, paved roads with rolling hills. Along the way, we will pass by Amish houses and farms and see buggies being pulled by horses. Riding will be at a moderate pace, but we will allow time to browse the shops along the way.

Plan to pack a lunch or bring some energy bars, since there are no restaurants along our route.  We'll be able to get water and snacks in the Amish community, at either the general store or the bent & dent.  Of course, we'll be able to get treats at the Amish bakery as well. 

The route takes us through Glacier Hills Wind Park, where we'll get to ride past many of the Park's 90 wind turbines.

Plan to arrive by 9:30 AM. We will push-off promptly at 10:00 AM.

Our specific meeting location is at the parking lot of Pardeeville Jr/Sr High School, at the intersection of Oak Street and La Follette Street in Pardeeville.

    Nice ride! Thanks, Ron! I liked the route very much: beautiful scenery, decent roads with very little traffic, interesting stops at the Amish establishments. The map was very well done and easy to follow. Hope to see you all again soon.

    Great, Ron did his usual outstanding job on the event, and he ain't a bad guy to have some chuckles with. EX: I said that they were selling used nose spray at the Bent and Dent store, he responded he understood they were also selling used dental floss.

    Fun time...perhaps it would be easier to get into the bakery if it wasn't a holiday weekend.

    A longer route is being scouted that would be offered in addition to the current 32-mile route. This longer route would include more Amish attractions.

    Hey Ron, can you send me the route. I pulled my Achilles playing soccer and it looks doubtful for Saturday. I want to ride it on my own when I'm healed. Thanks.
