2016 was the inaugural year for Bike to the Beat, and we had a whopping 1,464 riders to help us celebrate our first year. The bike ride was different than most for many reasons, music by original Mile of Music artists and free food from local businesses at the stops along the way; and bicyclists were encouraged to bring their families. My Team Triumph received $25,000 from the proceeds, and had bike captains and angels join us for the event.
If you want to be a part of the fun, registration is now open for the 2017 Bike to the Beat bike ride and early bird registration is now available, This year’s event will be on Saturday, August 5 starting and finishing at CBC Coating at 820 Olde Oneida St., Appleton which is 2 blocks south of Jones Park, (currently under construction) which was the start and finish of the ride in 2016. We are expecting over 3000 riders in 2017.
This year we invited BB/BS of the Green Bay and Fox Cities area to join us. They were offered 40 free passes so the Big’s could bring Little’s to a good community event.
This ride caters to all types of bicyclists whether you’re fast or slow, old or young. There are four distances to choose from, 10, 20, 36 or 50 mile routes, and start time is any time after 7 a.m. You can check out the different routes by going to https://foxbiketothebeat.com the course is a little different than last year.
