Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay is launching a new effort to encourage guests to be active while staying with us and to “Go Green” as they tour Door County.  Bright green, adult-size bicycles for men and bright purple, adult-size bicycles for women are available for free use throughout late spring, summer and early fall.  With bicycle trail maps in hand (provided at the front desk), guests can safely explore nearby roads and trails, or even load them on to their own bicycle racks to transport them to one of the state parks .  “Up close and personal” takes on new meaning as guests perch atop on a bike a hill and survey the vistas of rolling farm fields, or sense the quiet beauty of a forest along a bike trail, or simply to venture on a “back road” to explore hidden areas.  When you’re up here visiting, watch for the bright green and purple bicycles along the roads, or, better still, try one of our bicycles to enjoy the exercise and the natural aesthetics of Door County.
