AFFF BIKE RIDE YEAR 13!
62, 50, 36, 25 AND 20 MILE ROUTES!
PIG ROAST INCLUDED!
We're back for Year 13! Once again this year we will treat all riders to an old-fashioned "Pig Roast" following their rides at no extra cost. Plan your ride accordingly, as the Pig Roast will begin serving at 11:30 a.m. We hope that you will join us on Sunday, October 13th 2019, come rain or shine, at the Richmond Township Fire Protection District's Fire Station for the thirteenth annual Richmond Associated Firefighter's Fall Fifty Bike Ride, hosted by the Richmond Firefighter's Association. This year we will feature the most beautiful scenic autumn routes into southern Wisconsin from 20 miles up to 62 miles (100km). The metric century route has over 3,000 feet of climbing. If you like hills, you'll like this route.
Routes are 62, 50, 36, 25, and 20 miles. The terrain is flat to gently rolling with an occasional hill. (The 62-mile route has some BIG hills!) Family rides are still encouraged to ride the Prairie Trail (crushed limestone) which is located right across the street from our fire station. All road routes will have rest stops with basic essential nourishment, and refreshments. A SAG wagon driver will patrol the routes to assist you if you need help. On site bicycle support will be provided courtesy of The Bike Haven (McHenry, IL), prior to the start of your ride.
There is plenty of parking on the grounds of the fire station as well as nearby remote parking lots. Paved blacktop parking goes quickly so arrive early! Please enter of Route 12 onto Hunter Drive and you will be directed on where you'll be parking by one of our Volunteer Parking Coordinators.
ACTIVITIES AT THE FIRE STATION
Along with the bike ride, the fire department will be conducting its annual fire prevention Open House, as well as inviting the public to stop by for the Pig Roast.
