Join us for the 2019 BayCare Clinic Century!
The BayCare Clinic Century Bayshore to Lakeshore bicycle tour, fast becoming one of Wisconsin’s most popular bike rides, returns on Saturday, June 1, 2019.
Riders of all ages and fitness levels can choose from 100-, 60-, 30- and 15-mile routes through scenic Brown, Kewaunee and Door counties. Century riders, those going 100 miles, will travel from Green Bay to Lake Michigan and back. Along the way, all riders will enjoy rest stops where they can refuel with delicious snacks and beverages.
Our signature event – now in its third year – will start and finish at BayCare Clinic headquarters, 1035 Kepler Drive, on Green Bay’s east side.
After the ride, enjoy a picnic-style meal. We’ll have BBQ pulled pork, pasta salad, cole slaw, chips and cookies from Mackinaw’s Grill & Spirits. We'll also have beer, root beer and diet root beer from Badger State Brewing Co., along with root beer floats!

The BayCare Clinic Century Bayshore to Lakeshore offers 100-, 60-, 30- and 15-mile routes. Cyclists of all ages and abilities can experience an adventure tailored for them.
The ride starts and finishes at BayCare Clinic headquarters, which is convenient to Interstate 43 on Green Bay’s far east side.
The 100-mile route goes north along the waters of Green Bay, then east across the scenic terrain of Kewaunee and Door counties on the way to Lake Michigan. The lake is on the riders’ left as they head south, traveling through Algoma and Kewaunee. Then it’s west across the scenic terrain of Kewaunee and Brown counties before returning to Green Bay.
The 60-mile route also begins along the waters of Green Bay. Just beyond Dyckesville, the course turns south through scenic western Kewaunee County before returning to Green Bay.
The 30-mile route goes north along Huron and Bay Settlement roads along the ledge overlooking the waters of Green Bay. After stopping at Wequiock Falls Park, riders briefly loop back before heading out through eastern Brown County and returning to Green Bay.

2019 BayCare Clinic Century rest stops
All riders will take their first break at this beloved Brown County park just north of Green Bay. Be sure to step off your bike and explore Wequiock Falls!
After looping back and then heading east and south through eastern Brown County, 30-mile riders will take a break at this old-school social club east of Green Bay. Fun fact: The Hermans Club is known for its winter festival and booyah sales, which raise money for charities.
Another beloved Brown County park, this is the second stop for the 60- and 100-mile riders. You’ll enjoy a brief rest, then head out on the park’s bike trail toward Dyckesville. Fun fact: This was the site of Rockwood Lodge, an old Norbertine retreat where the Green Bay Packers trained from 1946 to 1949. It was destroyed by fire in 1950.
After going through Dyckesville and heading south, the 60-mile riders will have this stop all to themselves. The Rendezvous is a landmark bowling alley and banquet hall in the tiny Kewaunee County crossroads of Neuern, southwest of Luxemburg.
The only Door County rest stop takes the 100-mile riders down a tree-covered lane along the Ahnapee State Trail to the park. There, you’ll find a pavilion and a small dock offering great views of the Forestville Flowage.
This year’s Algoma rest stop for the 100-mile riders is in Peterson Park on the city’s north side. From the park, you’ll cross the Ahnapee River, go through downtown and head south toward Kewaunee.
This park in Kewaunee’s outer harbor area offers one last look at Lake Michigan for the 100-mile riders before they head west on the return trip to Green Bay. If the wind is up, watch waves crash over the north breakwall! Fun fact: The park commemorates Father Jacques Marquette, a French explorer who visited the area in 1674.
Tucked among the gently rolling hills of western Kewaunee County, this vineyard and winery greets riders on the 60- and 100-mile courses as they near the end of Sleepy Hollow Road. From here, riders continue west to Stangelville and beyond on the final leg of their adventure.
Last call! This picturesque farm roughly 10 miles from the finish offers the 30-, 60- and 100-mile riders one last opportunity to take a break for water, a snack and to answer nature’s call if needed. From here, it’s west and north back into Green Bay.
