Join us Friday, June 21st, for the fifth annual Polish Moon Ride, a unique, family-friendly bike tour through Milwaukee’s historic Polish neighborhoods. The easy, slow roll through the real “Streets of Old Milwaukee” honors the area’s Polish and German history while it celebrates the present-day Latino culture. Be sure to bring the whole family for this ride. The pace and distance are slow enough for all ages and abilities, and the police keep everyone safe. Kids love the feeling of riding around on these historic streets of old Milwaukee as the sun sets!
This year the ride will be hosted by the super cool Fuel Cafe 5th Street location.
Come hungry, because the Polish Moon Ride begins at 5 with delicious Polish and Mexican food. Fuel Cafe will be serving Polish Sausages and Empanadas. Of course we will have free ice cream again for the kids thanks to Wisconsin’s Cedar Crest, who also donate for the kids races at ToAD! MX Rudigo Norteño, one of Milwaukee’s hottest norteña bands, will play at Fuel to get you warmed up for the ride.
The police-led ride starts at 7 with accordion players like the crowd favorite Uncle Kenny cranking out polka on the back of cargo bikes along the entire 8-mile, family-friendly ride. Be prepared to be amazed, as the crowd of people on bikes last year stretched 10 city blocks! This is a SLOW ride, so no need for spandex! There will also be lots of short stops along the route as the police hold us at intersections. We will have ride support in case you have a flat or mechanical.
