2017 Factory Ride Calendar

Waterford Summer Factory Ride Series

Please join us for our factory ride series held four times during the summer. Each ride is free, though we welcome donations to the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin, our state advocacy group. These rides are conducted thanks to the support of a number of local bike clubs, who help organize the route and bring treats. Limited SAG support (non-first aid trained) is provided.

Routes vary in length from 12 to 70 miles. You’ll enjoy relatively quiet roads through some of the more scenic areas in southeastern Wisconsin and rest stops at local businesses for food and drink. You can start your visit with a tour of the Waterford factory which starts at 8AM sharp.

Riders at all levels are welcome. It’s a great opportunity to ride with friends and to meet new people. We encourage riding in groups and organize participants by ability and ambition. Helmets are required, as is signing a ride waiver for the club and for Waterford. Cell phones are recommended safety gear, though coverage in the area can be spotty.

Bad weather threatening? Visit this page or the Waterford facebook page for the most up-to-date info.

July 8: We’re combining our June and July Factory rides for a tour up to the area around Eagle, WI with the KR Bike Club, Chicago Cycling Club and the Evanston Bike Club. Limited SAG support with snacks and refreshments at the end of the ride. Factory Tour at 8AM; we roll at 8:45.

Keep on ridin’!
