Pump up your tires and get pumped for this event. Ride on the Wild Side is the one time a year you can ride
your bike in the Milwaukee County Zoo. This is a fun event for people of all ages and skill levels. Plus, it
helps raise money for the Zoological Society of Milwaukee. In addition to a bike ride, the registration fee
includes entry to the Zoo and parking, a continental breakfast, lunch, a long sleeve T-shirt, crafts and
activities for children, followed by a day at the Zoo.
There are four routes to choose from. The 2.5-mile, kid-friendly ride stays inside the Zoo. Guests can take
as many laps as they want until time runs out. Or, riders can choose a 10-, 17- or 27-mile ride that starts
and ends in the Zoo but goes out through the Menomonee River Parkway along the Oak Leaf Trail.
Helmets are mandatory.
