With its hills, winding paths and beautiful setting, the Milwaukee County Zoo is a great place to ride your bike. At the Zoological Society of Milwaukee's annual bike ride fundraiser, you can do just that. Kids of all ages can cruise in the Critter Caravan, a special 2.5-mile kids' route through the Zoo. Their favorite plush-toy animal friends can tag along in a bike basket or backpack. Seasoned riders with a passion for pedaling can choose one of the distance routes (10, 17 & 27-mile rides) that start at the Zoo and continue north along the Menomonee River Parkway and the Oak Leaf Trail.
Kids can enjoy a post-ride snack, make some crafts, and get a temporary tattoo in the Kids Zone. After the ride, all participants can park their bike in the Bike Corral and enjoy lunch.
Registration includes zoo admission, parking, a long-sleeve shirt, continental breakfast and picnic lunch! Check-in begins at 7:00am. Rides start at 8:00 & 8:15am.
