Ride on the Wild Side is the Zoological Society’s annual family bike ride event. Choose from three routes: a children’s 2.5-mile ride through the Zoo, and two distance rides (27 miles and 17 miles) that travel through the Zoo and continue through the Menomonee River Parkway along the Oak Leaf bike trail.
This year, children can show off their favorite animal toys in Critter Caravan, the 2.5-mile kids’ route. The animal toy can ride in a bike basket, a backpack or even on the handlebars (if it’s small)! Plus, after the ride, kids and their plush pet can head to the Kids ‘n Critters Corral, sponsored by Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren, S.C., to grab a snack, get a temporary tattoo and create crafts. After the ride, all participants can enjoy a picnic lunch after parking their bikes in a secure area sponsored by OneMain Financial. All routes begin and conclude at the Zoo. Your ride entry fee includes a continental breakfast, lunch, long-sleeve T-shirt, entry to the Zoo for the entire day and parking.
Wearing a helmet is mandatory to participate in this event.
