Update! We will start our ride at City Lights Brewery. They have plenty of parking and space for us to meet up before the start of the ride.
Join us for an evening tour of some of the Holiday lights in Milwaukee on Saturday, December 11th.
We’ll meet up at City Lights Brewery (2200 W Mt Vernon Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53233) starting at 3:15pm. We mount up and ride out at 4:15. Our first ride by will be the Magic of Lights show at American Family Field. If you wish to ride through the lights like the cars, you will need to pre-purchase a ticket at the link below and use the code: BIKE2021. The cost is $15 per rider and tickets will only be good for this night. They are opening early at 4:30 expressly for us riders. All of these other light displays of this type do not let cyclists through, but here they are trying to accommodate us as best as possible and it would be great to have a good showing for them. If you decide to opt out of riding through the course the route will take you around the perimeter of the parking lots and you’ll be on the outside looking in.
From there we will head over to Miller Brewing and take in the valley light display they put up with a possible photo op at the stack o’kegs. Heading downtown along Wisconsin Avenue we’ll have stops at Pere Marquette Park, Cathedral Park and Zeidler Park to walk and wonder at the lights.
At this point we may need to warm up so we’ll roll over to the Explorium Brewpub and partake of their fire pits, after which we’ll head back along Canal Street to City Lights Brewing.
Holiday attire and lights are encouraged
Ride will take us 4 -5 hours at a nice easy no drop pace with time to enjoy the lights and refreshments.
Be Merry, Be Happy, Be Safe
