Door County providing fitness break and tourism during pandemic

Door County will likely continue to draw bikers and kayakers this summer looking to maintain their physical and mental health as the pandemic continues.  Last year's delayed summer tourism season drew visitors who'd been cooped up all winter and were looking for safe, healthy fun.  David Rack, the co-owner of Door County Kayak Tours, saw more people kayaking for the first time because it naturally provided social distancing.  Rack also says he saw more electric and fat-tire bike rentals.  Business was so good that the company saw interest in winter biking.


The winter rental momentum is expected to carry over into spring and summer.  Rack expects more repeat customers who've discovered fitness destinations close to home.


Rack says going to winter biking for the first time was a bit of a no-brainer.  He wanted to keep himself and his employees working a bit longer.
