Ride Across Wisconsin, RAW 2018
Invitational and Out-of-Town Rides
Join special guest Jens Voigt and the Trek-Segafredo Racing team for the fourth-annual Ride Across Wisconsin: 175 miles across the greatest state ever on August 11th, 2018. You won't want to miss the incredible route, unbeatable scenery, and rare chance to ride handlebar-to-handlebar with cycling legends, from Dubuque to Kenosha.
The ride begins in Dubuque and follows scenic, low traffic roads 175 miles across the bottom of the state. We have rest stops every 25 miles with lots of great, locally sourced food. Lunch will be hosted at The Rock Bar and Grillright on the Rock River in Beloit. The ride ends with a finishers party at Simmons Island Beach along the shore of Lake Michigan in Kenosha. Ride under the finishers truss, grab your cool (bottomless) finishers mug and celebrate with fellow riders with beer from Public Craft Brewing and great Italian food from DeRango’s, both of Kenosha. You’ve earned it!
RAW is an epic but fun ride across Wisconsin that should be part of everyone’s cycling bucket list. For anyone worried about finishing 175 miles in one day, we offer a 105 Dubuque to Beloit option, with motor coach transport to Kenosha so you can celebrate with everyone else.
The ride begins in Dubuque because it’s a great location with plenty of hotel rooms, food options and frankly, the route across the southern part of the state is shorter! There will be 14 hours and 13 minutes of daylight on August 11th, which should allow most riders to finish before it gets dark, but please bring lights just in case!
