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 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- to 20-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 'n Critters Corral. After the ride, all participants can park their bike in the Bike Corral and enjoy lunch. Rides start at 8 and 8:15 a.m. The registration fee includes entry to the Zoo and parking, a continental breakfast, lunch and a long-sleeve T-shirt. Remember to bring your bike helmet!
