Bike On! Get Cycling For Wisconsin Bike Week In June
bike to work, or check out a national park trail for free, as part of Wisconsin Bike Week on June 5-13
If you're a "cycopath," or just looking for a good reason to get some fresh air outdoors, check out the slew of exciting events slated for Wisconsin Bike Week in the Chippewa Valley from June 5-13.
“Local bike rides are some of the best ways to see our Valley and can still offer distancing without isolation,” said Dean Roth, organizer of upcoming cycling events. “Rolling along on our trails feels normal. Who would’ve thought normal could be exciting? But here we are.”
From June 5-6, enjoy free entry to all (local, regional, and national!) state trails and parks, including the Chippewa River State Trail, Old Abe State Trail, and the Red Cedar State Trail. Celebrate Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day on June 5 through a free event presented by CORBA and Eau Claire Youth Cycling from 10am-1pm at the Eau Claire County Expo Center pavilion. Register ahead at corbatrails.org.
On June 6, check out the Altoona Bike Rodeo, then on June 7, cycle over to the CORBA Group Ride, starting at 6pm at the Eau Claire County Expo Center pavilion.
One June 8, go green by biking to work for Bike To Work Day. Then, on June 11, check out the Visit Eau Claire Experience Center for the Chippewa Valley Bike Map 2021 release party from 4-6pm, where you can take a peek at the newest, latest, and greatest map for cycling in the Valley.
Finally, on Sunday, June 13, join in on a variety of bike ride events, featuring three routes with staggering starts.
