2020 Factory Ride
|Safety first: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this event, scheduled for July 25, 2020, is in doubt. We will finalize our decision by July 18, one week before the event. Please check with us at that time. For your protection, and fore the protection of you, your fellow riders, volunteers and Waterford staff, please bring a face mask. We will take special precautions to prevent the spread of disease and ask that you maintain recommended social distancing.|
The 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, especially the KR Bike Club (Kenosha / Racine) 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 8 AM 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.

Keep on ridin’!
