MCHS & Pabst Mansion team with Bublr Bikes for historic bike tours
The Milwaukee County Historical Society and Pabst Mansion have teamed up with Bublr Bikes to offer a series of two-wheeled tours running from May through October.
Tour participants can bring their own bikes or rent a Bublr at a nearby train station. Bublr recently announced the addition of more than two dozen additional rental stations and nearly 200 electric assist e-bikes to its system this year as well.
Three of the four tours – all led by historian and cycling enthusiast Dana Hansen – will depart from MCHS on King Drive and Kilbourn Avenue:
- A Bridge House: A Historic Bike Tour of the Bridges That Once Divided Our Home in Milwaukee
- Milwaukee History and Beer Garden Bike Tour
- History and Beer Bike Tour: Haunted Milwaukee
Another tour leaves from the Pabst Mansion on the 20th and from Wisconsin:
- The Pabst heritage: a baron and his brewery
The price of the tours ranges from $ 25 to $ 40 per person and a 24 hour bike rental can be added for $ 12 per person. The proceeds support the missions of the participating historical non-profit institutions.
The tours, says Mame McCully, Executive Director of MCHS, “add a new, immersive way to explore Milwaukee. We look forward to people joining us for one, or maybe all, of the four historic bike tours.
