We want everyone from highly experienced riders to families who might be new to biking to have a blast. That’s why the ride offers 5 different route options from 8 to 56 miles, all focused on exploring the natural beauty and small-town charm our little corner of Wisconsin has to offer
And remember, as we always like to say, it’s a ride, not a race! We encourage you to ride at your own pace, set your own goals for the day, and take time to enjoy the view!
All rides start right down the road from us at Fireman’s Park in Newburg (508 Main Street, Newburg, WI 53060- click here for a Google Map link)!
8 miles Suggested start time: 9:00 – 10:00 am
Two easy hills provide big biking pleasure. Wetlands, riverbanks, valley views, cows, and corn – it’s all here! Stop for snacks along the Milwaukee River. Enjoy the beauty of the river and the countryside. A fully stocked rest station waits for you at the end of a country road – complete with a pasture of horses to pet and enjoy!
17 Miles Suggested start time: 8:30 – 9:00 am
Ride through gentle, rolling terrain, down a rustic road, past horse paddocks and ponds, and by woods and wetlands. Enjoy a brief detour past the Cedarburg Bog, visit one of the county’s oldest churches and enjoy the tranquility of an old Irish cemetery.
27 Miles Suggested start time: 7:30 – 8:30 am
To the previous route, add gentle rolling hills, great views of the Milwaukee River valleys, a meandering ride past Cedar Creek and Wisconsin’s last covered bridge.

Frequently asked questions
Where to start ( & park)
Although your ride will end at Riveredge for the picnic celebration, all rides start right down the road from us at Fireman’s Park in Newburg (508 Main Street, Newburg, WI 53060- click here for a Google Map link)! Free parking is available at Fireman’s Park starting at 7:30 AM. Please note that this means after you finish celebrating at Riveredge, you’ll need to bike the 1.4 miles back to Fireman’s Park to return to your car. Don’t worry, you’ll be such a pro after your ride that it’ll feel like the blink of an eye!
When to start
Suggested start times are listed above in the descriptions for each route, but all riders must be started no later than 10 AM. Check-in (no need to bring your receipt, we’ll have your name!) and day-of registration open at Fireman’s Park at 7:30 AM. (We know how excited many folks are to get started right away, but we can not get anyone signed in or up earlier than 7:30, even if you’re waiting.)
Are the roads closed?
Your safety is our biggest concern! It is very important to note that the Riveredge Bike Ride is NOT A RACE and the routes/roads are NOT CLOSED.
That means you’ll be sharing the roads with vehicles, so rules of the road must be observed and single file riding is required. We’ll have intersections marked for you, but most will not be guarded. Major intersections will be manned by route monitors. Please observe traffic monitors’ directions! Law officers will enforce road and riding rules.
Helmets are required. Bike mirrors are recommended.
What is at the rest stops?
Rest stops offer toilet facilities and healthy refreshments. Help us keep the ride “green” by observing the signs on the trash and recycle bins. Thank you!
Bike repair is also offered at the rest stops.
What if I break down?
Support vehicles will be circling the route. Make sure you ride with a cell phone and call the center if you need a support vehicle directed to you.
Bike repair stations will also be available at the rest stops.
their support makes it possible
A HUGE thank you is in order to the sponsors who help make this ride possible. If you’re looking to support companies who, like you, care about the community, cycling, and conservation, look no further!
