In conjunction with the Brookfield Zoo, Milwaukee Zoo, American Association of Zoo Keepers and Polar Bears International, the Chicago Cycling Club is helping with the first annual Cycle for Change ride from Brookfield Zoo to the Milwaukee County Zoo on 7/21.
The ride will take us along the shores of Lake Michigan with our first stop at Ft. Sheridan for brunch and then onwards to Kenosha for a rest stop and snack and finally to the Milwaukee County Zoo concluding with a dinner. This is a sag wagon supported ride with snacks, drinks and light mechanical assist.
You’re welcome to ride with us as far as you wish or our join us the entire way to Milwaukee County Zoo.
There is no fee for this ride but registration is required to sign the special waiver and for our logistics. There is a limited number of riders that we can support, so if you’re interested please RSVP quickly (we’re OK if you withdraw later but we want to prepare logistics).
As a special treat, Philip Fensterer, a zookeeper with the Oregon Zoo and Artic Ambassador with Polar Bears International and the staff at the Brookfield Zoo will give a special behind the scene presentation to Chicago Cycling Club members and guests the evening before the ride. Limited to 30 participants (RSVP priority).
For registration and/or pledge instructions, send an email to Philip and Howard.
