Waukesha Bike Week Begins Tomorrow!

Come celebrate cycling in Waukesha this whole week!



Saturday morning kicks off with kids Kids Neighborhood Bike Rodeo hosted by Christ the Life Lutheran Church at 3031 Summit Avenue.  From 10am to Noon, there will be bike safety checks, helmet fittings and bicycle workshops for kids ages 4-12. Volunteers are still needed if you have a little time. you can contact Pastor Eric at ejedwards2000@yahoo.com if you are interested in helping out.

Sunday morning, we'll be continuing mountain bike trail work at Minooka Park from 8:30-11am. Meet in Picnic Area 5. One loop is done and we're working towards having a second finished for the grand opening June 1st! if you don't have to take Mom to brunch after, bring your bike ride what we have finished. Work day details are on the Metro Mountain Bikers Events page.

Monday is Bike To Work Day. We'll be set up at the Riverfront Pavillion downtown from 6-9am with coffee, scones, grab bags and bike mechanics. Come make a pit stop and get your week to work started off by bike!

Wednesday is the national Ride of Silence. This is a slow 5 mile ride around the city to honor those who have been injured or killed while bicycling on public roads. The ride will begin at 7pm from the Springhouse in downtown on Bank Street.

Friday is the always fun Bikesha social ride. leaving Café de Arts at 7pm, we'll tour the Fox River Parkway and downtown, finishing up at Magellan's for pizza! Bring lights and a helmet, dress casual and have fun- that's what biking's about!

If you haven't gotten enough cycling in, you could still Ride to Worship on Sunday. Bikewaukesha.org will have a list of congregations promoting biking to worship this weekend.

Thank you to our sponsors, Café de Arts, CycleSmith, Spring City Spinners and Magellan's for making Bike Week possible!
