The annual Milwaukee commuter race is scheduled for Wednesday, May 17th at 7:30 a.m. on Bluemound between 51st and 56th. I am not sure of the exact location. The race is between a bicycle, car, and bus and ends at Zeidler Park on 4th and Michigan. The bike has always won in past years but I spoke to the bus driver this morning and he was very determined and mentioned not stopping for red lights...

starts on 56 th should be a fun time. heads up though, the same guy has won it for like 5 or more years in a row.
This is a really cool idea.

It needs to go in the opposite direction so I can win it on my way to work.:p

We had a race like that here to promote biking public transport, and trains (the latter two services are pretty ****ty here). The boss of the railway company went along on a train. Guess what: the train was late and got beaten by the car :eek: Biker won, of course.
