Year Packed With Bike Events

Yowza.

I was preparing to appear on a Wisconsin Public Radio show this morning when I put together some notes on what the Bike Fed has coming up in the next several months.

The list is pretty darn exciting. Take a look:

March: Bike Walk Civics, Thursdays at noon. An online seminar for local advocates to help them become more effective.

March 12 – May 12: Spring Classics Series, various dates and places. No drop rides organized by members.

March 9 -12: Midwest Bike Show, Alliant Center, Madison.

April 7 – 9: Bike Expo, Fair Grounds, West Allis.

April 13: Lobby Day, State Capitol, Madison.

April 20: Self-Driving Car Conference, Music Hall, UW-Madison, 1 to 5 PM. Free and open to the public.

May 4: Wisconsin Bike Summit, Grand Avenue Mall, Milwaukee, 9 AM to 4 PM.

May 5: Inaugural Wisconsin Cycling Hall of Fame Gala, Italian Community Center, Milwaukee, evening.

June 1 – 10: Wisconsin Bike Week. Events around the state all week.

June 11: Milwaukee Ciclovia (still a little tentative, check back before the event).

June 28 – 30: Places for Bikes Conference, Madison.

July 21: Polish Moon Ride, Milwaukee, evening. The iconic laconic Milwaukee slow roll is also a fundraiser for the Bike Fed. Date not yet confirmed.

August 25 – 27: RAW Weekend, Kenosha, Dubuque, Beloit.

September: Northern Bike Summit. Details coming this summer.

October 27: Saris Gala, evening, Union South, Madison.

Whew. At a lot of these events we need volunteers. So if you’re interested in helping out just shoot me an email at dave.cieslewicz@wisconsinbikefed.org.

Also, for some events you will find details already up here on our website while in other cases details will follow soon.

And of course what I’ve listed here, with a few exceptions, are just Bike Fed sponsored events. Look for a listing of some 250 events and rides coming soon in the Ride Guide.

Did I say it before? Yowza.
