    Bike for Wisconsin Ride

    Sunday, September 17, 2006 Ride Start: 7 - 9 a.m.
    Cedarburg High School fieldhouse entrance
    W68 N611 Evergreen Blvd.
    Cedarburg , WI

    Distances: 11, 16, 30, and 62 miles

    Ozaukee County - 11 and 16 miles rides are mostly flat, 30 and 62 fairly hilly. One good hill on the 30 I coasted to 47mph on mtb tires last year... boy was that fun! Well supported ride, and the Cedarburg Wine & Harvest festival runs the same day - just a few blocks away.

    Hope to see some BF members there

    Nice Ride

    I loved the 30 miler last year and look forward to the 62 this year. Last year's 30 was one of the nicest mixes of hills and flats I've seen - and through lovely countryside, too. The Wine & Harvest Festival is a great bonus as Cedarburg is a fun little town even without.

    The online deadline for registration is on 9.11.06, although last year it didn't look too horribly crowded at the on site registration table.

    It's looking good until noon weatherwise. Anybody else planning on riding the 100k/62mi?

    I did the 62 mile (actually 61), nice ride, other than the downpour at a bit after 7am! Only snag was my rear tire sidewall blew out (literally) w/3 miles to go. WOW-scary, lucky I was only going about 18mph instead of 35mph on some of those hills. I limped myself back with a half inflated tire/spare tube. Now-new tire time. FYI-I will not buy Hutchinson Top Speeds again-only approx 1k miles on them, they are in terrible shape.
