Tour du Taliesin features two different ticketing levels and two different route distances. The MASTER ($205 per rider) helps advance Taliesin Preservation's mission with a generous charitable contribution — and includes a Taliesin-designed bike jersey. The APPRENTICE ($105 per rider) supports Taliesin Preservation with a charitable contribution — and includes a pair of Taliesin-designed riding socks.

Join us for an after-party at Tan-y-Deri Hill, which has resplendent views of Taliesin and some intimate out-of-the-way areas of the estate. “We’re excited to be celebrating Frank Lloyd Wright’s built, natural, and cultural environments while engaging a whole new audience through Tour du Taliesin. Guests will enjoy a truly unique Wisconsin experience through great local food and great local architecture,” says Sarah Milestone, Director of Development & Marketing. Enjoy local beer and seasonal fare, some of which are grown right here at Taliesin. A limited number of Taliesin House Tours are also available for an additional cost. (Advance reservations are required.)

In addition to riders, Taliesin Preservation seeks volunteers to assist with the event and to provide an extraordinary experience for the riders.

Space is limited. Please reserve your ride or sign up to volunteer online here.
