The Milwaukee Underwear Bike Ride is back for its third summer of monthly rides. Join us on Thursday, August 16th for the third underwear ride of this summer!
“This is a group ride just for fun, and to promote positive self body image. Anyone and everyone is welcome!”
The ride meets at the south end of Reservoir Hill, located in Kilbourn Park (just to be clear, this is the park between North and Meinecke). We’re all meeting at 8pm, and leaving soon after. Please make sure to show up on time if you want patches and pins for the ride (asking for a small $1-2 donation).
Hundreds of bicyclists riding by and cheering in their skivvies will surely turn some smiling heads, but what about the potentially embarassing ride alone to the meet with everyone? Fear not! We encourage everyone to ride down in clothes that they’re willing to strip out of and donate at the meet spot. We’ll be donating all the clothing to St. Vincent de Paul.
The afterparty is at Yield, located at 1932 E. Kenilworth. Fresh Cut Collective will be performing along with Animals In Human Attire, with music starting around 11pm. $5 tall Rehorst cocktails, and $2 PBR tallboys.
Our friends over at Ian’s Pizza on North Avenue are running some specials for all the underwear riders, so take a short walk over from Yield if you get hungry at all during the night.
We’re looking for some ride “ambassadors” to help throughout the ride. You’ll be able to enjoy yourselves just like everyone else, but will be familiar with the route and help communicate different things to keep everyone safe. Flats and mechanical problems are bound to happen to a few, so we’ll also have ride support along to help anyone that might run into such problems and get you caught back up with the rest of the group. If you’re interested in helping, simply get in touch.
If this is your first ride, or even if you’ve been to almost every one, please read this. This is a safe and fun ride for everyone involved, so let’s keep it that way.
Please ride safely and be respectful of others around you. We will be riding at a group pace, and following the rules of the road (i.e. staying in our lane, stopping at red lights, etc.). Remember to bring your bike lights!
