Steel Is Real MilwaukeeCelebrating Steel Frame Bicycles
Total Immersion Cycling
Sports - Sporting Event
Saturday, September 12, 2009
10:00am - 5:00pm
2608 N Downer Avenue
25-mile bike tour for steel frame bicycles only. Start/finish is at Cafe Hollander, a great cycling-theme tavern/restaurant with terrific food and Belgian beer selection, on Downer Avenue in Milwaukee.
What's it all about? Steel is real. We'll be celebrating the elegance of steel frame bicycles by riding the streets and bike trails of Milwaukee while making stops at unique taverns along the way. Fun on bikes in a fun-ky city.
Any steel frame one-on-one, vintage road, off-road or contemporary bike is welcome. We'll have a magnet on a string at registration and, if the magnet don't swing the fat lady sings.
Every rider will get a long-sleeve T-shirt with the Steel Is Real lady & greyhound logo and other swag. We'll have games and contests like the "I should have taken 'er to Ziebart" best rust bucket bike (must be ridden on the ride). Check back for more fun stuff as things gel.
The start will be 10 am with registration open at 8:30 (breakfast available on own at Cafe Hollander). With all the fun it will likely be an all day event. Email for a PDF entry form or answers to questions.
