May is bike month nationwide. Bike to work day is May 17 nationwide. Here in Wisconsin we celebrate bike to work week in June because the weather is usually nicer. In 2019 Wisconsin bike to work week will be June 2 to 9. There are all sorts of fun events, rides, commuter stations and other fun things to do on your bike. See you there!
Drawing nearly 500 attendees each year, the Fat Tire Tour of Milwaukee is the oldest and most historic group ride in the greater Milwaukee area. With over 30 years under its “tires,” this annual movie-themed group ride attracts and unites young bucks and old dogs alike over a common love of bikes and beer.
The FTTM is a casual paced ride covering 15-25 miles over a 6-7 hour span. The route changes every year offering a unique Milwaukee experience over and over again. Not only does the route change, but it’s a surprise until the morning of. What is more exciting than that? A mystery ride with mystery stops! The only thing you know when you wake up that morning is you will have a blast touring Milwaukee with 500 of your closest friends. Participants have the opportunity to dress up, compete in wildly entertaining contests, and have a plain ol’ good time.
Basically, more fun than the law allows for over three decades.
