Each year our ride has gotten bigger, better, and more fun, and this year will be no exception. Tour de MKE is all about getting together with Milwaukeeans, touring our city, stopping at some of the best locations along the way, getting some exercise, and raising money for a great cause! Over the past four years, we’ve peddled our way across the city – in sun, rain, or sleet but always with a smile – and we’re ready to do it all again this year. #TourdeMKE is a fun ride for charity--100% of the money raised goes to PEARLS for Teen Girls. Your participation in the 2018 Tour de Milwaukee puts you in the club with other Milwaukeeans biking and celebrating our beautiful city. As always, the event will be focused on getting quality Milwaukeeans together to celebrate the love of cycling and of Milwaukee, all for a good cause. The ride will be a similar length as previous years, and as always, there will be spots along the way to rest up, fuel up, and laugh. Here are some initial details for this year's ride: Just like last year, all riders are encouraged to ride as teams! You can sign up together, set goals together, plan costumes together, and even make a team cheer. (If you don’t have anyone to be on a team with, don’t worry! There will be plenty of teams looking for a teammate.) Rather than paying a participation fee, all riders this year are encouraged to do some light fundraising (either as an individual or as a team). We’ve set up a site through Crowdrise that makes this super easy to do. There is no minimum to fundraise; simply put the word out there and see who will throw a few dollars your way.
