The biggest bicycling bash in the country is back.

Join us Friday, November 4th, 7pm, at Union South in downtown Madison, WI for the 13th annual Saris Gala, the biggest bicycling bash in Wisconsin and the largest single-night bike advocacy fundraiser in the country. Click here to get your tickets now.

We’re thrilled to welcome our special guest, 2016 Team USA Olympic gold medalist and world champion triathlete, Gwen Jorgensen, along with Bob Babbit, legendary triathlon commentator.

As always, the Gala features a  thrilling live auction, silent auctions, and great food and drink — along with a special Q&A with Gwen Jorgensen and Bob Babbit.

Just a few of our unique silent auction items include a custom Waterford frame from Richard Schwinn, a Weehoo kids bike trailer, beer for a year from the Wisconsin Brewing Company, and fully outfitted commuter and winter riding kits from Planet Bike.
