Join us Friday, June 22nd, for the fourth annual Polish Moon Ride, a unique, family-friendly bike tour through Milwaukee’s historic Polish neighborhoods. The easy, slow roll through the real “Streets of Old Milwaukee” honors the area’s Polish and German history while it celebrates the present-day Latino culture. Be sure to bring the whole family for this ride. The pace and distance are slow enough for all ages and abilities, and the police keep everyone safe. Kids love the feeling of riding around on these historic streets of old Milwaukee as the sun sets!
This year the ride will be hosted by the super cool new Fuel Cafe 5th Street location and Nomad Nacional across the street. Both are new businesses who opened on the recently reconstructed South 5th Street. Nomad Nacional's 2018 Fanzone is a new summer hub for alfresco eats & drinks, colorful vibes, dance nights & world music, and all things FIFA World Cup!
Come hungry, because the Polish Moon Ride begins at 5 with delicious Polish and Mexican food. The grill masters from Ben’s Cycle and Milwaukee Bicycle Company will man the barbeque, featuring Klements Polish sausage on Sciortino's buns. Fuel Cafe and Nomad Nacional will be serving amazing Mexican food and Pierogies as well. Of course we will have free ice cream again for the kids thanks to Wisconsin's Cedar Crest, who also donate for the kids races at ToAD! MX Rudigo Norteño, one of Milwaukee’s hottest norteña bands, will play at Fuel to get you warmed up for the ride. Nomad Nacional will also have a mariachi band.
Best of all, our good friends Milwaukee Brewing Company have donated some Polish Moon Stout! It was a conversation over a Polish Moon Stout where I orginally came up with the idea for the Polish Moon Bike Ride. There will be plenty of other barley pops, drinks and non-alcoholic bevies available as well to keep you hydrated before and after the ride. We were talking about scheduling a family-friendly full moon ride in Milwaukee, and I looked at my beer and realized the Polish Moon is always full.
The police-led ride starts at 7 with accordion players cranking out polka on the back of cargo bikes along the entire 8-mile, family-friendly ride. Be prepared to be amazed, as the crowd of people on bikes last year stretched 10 city blocks! This is a SLOW ride, and expect lots of short stops along the route as the police hold us at intersections. We will have ride support in case you have a flat or mechanical.
As soon as you get back to the start at Fuel Cafe, the Polish Moon Polka Trio kicks off the after-party with their special Milwaukee style of Polka, so bring shoes you can dance in. Still hungry? No problem, as there will be more great local food, craft beer and free ice cream while it lasts.
