The states of Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota form the western shoreline of the Great Lakes and are home to an amazingly diverse collection of inns and B&Bs. And thanks to this handy volume, you can treat yourself to a weekend getaway at any of the establishments profiled within and find an equally diverse array of bicycle rides on quiet country roads, rail trails, and singletrack paths through remote woods.

Whether youre a died-in-the-Lycra roadie, hard-core mountain biker, or someone who likes to ride on rail trails and paved city paths for fun and relaxation, there is a destination for you in Bed, Breakfast & Bike. Perhaps youd like to ride your mountain bike high above the shores of Lake Superior in Grand Marais, Minnesota. Maybe youd like to speed along the Mississippi River in Illinois, or leisurely explore the parks and cultural attractions of two of the most bike-friendly cities in the countryRochester, Minnesota and Madison, Wisconsin. With at least two rides from every inn, you cant go wrong.

The lodging choices run the gamut, as well. Youll find restored Victorian mansions, rustic lodges, sprawling farmhouseseven a converted county jail! The authors have personally selected each of the 24 inns and B&Bs in these pages, and provide you with a thorough description of the accommodations and dining options. The final chapter provides a selection of recipes from the inns, so you can attempt to replicate that stunning breakfast that fueled you up the first hill.
