WHY WE FUNDRAISE

SUNDAY
FREE - FAMILY FRIENDLY BIKE RIDE!

Free to those who sign up online before the ride!

Participation in the slow roll requires completing the FREE registration!

This is a casual, no drop, 10 mile bike ride from State Fair Park towards downtown and back using trails and roads safe for cyclists. The ride is in honor of Chris Kegel who owned Wheel & Sprocket but we celebrate to fundraise to continue his legacy creating bicycle specific infrastructure in Milwaukee. There is a free afterparty at Kegel's Inn for those who pre-register.
