Want to Ride with the Heart and Soul Crew?

Register via https://www.bataviarotaryclub.org/sitepage/frog. The route is mostly path (crushed limestone or asphalt) with a few miles of rural roads in Wisconsin. Our first stop along the way is at the 20-mile mark and after that, there is a designated stop about every 10 miles. All of the stops provide water, Gatorade, fruit, and snacks. All but one stop has local establishments right at the stop to provide a greater variety of food and “beverages” to purchase. We usually arrive in Lake Geneva at about 4pm and the bus arrives at 7pm. That gives everyone enough time to have dinner and enjoy a little bit of Lake Geneva.

Ride Includes: Map, Sag Wagon & Mechanical Assistance, Designated stops for food & drink (at your cost) and Includes (optional) bus transportation back to Batavia (arrive home around 7:00 pm)!
