The Glacial River Trail runs through the heart of Fort Atkinson. Mostly paved and open year-round, this 31.5-mile bike trail passes by farmsteads, bronze sculptures, prairie flowers, woods, over streams, and through a rustic, red covered bridge.
June 24, 2023: The Tour da Goose (TDG) bike ride was founded in 2013 by Rita Brafford and Jon Fisch, a couple who enjoyed bike riding together and lived in the community of Watertown. Rita joined the Watertown Area Cares Clinic (WACC) , a healthcare clinic for people who are unable to afford health care services. They wanted to be able to raise money for the clinic and provide an outdoor athletic event for families and bicycling athletes. Tour da Goose starts in Watertown and crosses Jefferson County, with a stop in Fort Atkinson.
If you need a bike rental, purchase, or repair while you're in Fort, 2 Rivers Bicycle & Outdoor is your source for all things bicycling! They off a variety of classes, group activities, and events, and also rent kayaks.
2023 Tour de Fort bike ride scheduled for August 26, 2023. More information coming soon.
It was cold, but riders still came out to travel through Fort, dressed in their favorite Santa hats, ugly holiday sweaters, and reindeer antlers!
