Fed Fest is Coming

Fed Fest is the Bike Fed’s first attempt to organize a bunch of fun bicycle rides and social gatherings across Wisconsin on the same day (or close to the same day).  This first year we managed to wrangle five events, hopefully one is near you.

In coming years we would like to have more events across the state so everyone is just a short bike ride away from a chance to socialize with other Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin.  All you have to do to put together a Fed Fest in your area is to orgainize any sort of ride and have a little party afterward.  You could have  a road ride, mtb ride, meet at a tavern or cook out in your back yard. The Bike Fed will put your event on our poster and promote it to our members in your area. If you think you might like to put together something in your community, email Matt Gissibl
