May 9, 2013 8:13 AM

Ride the Drive-Downtown- Sunday, June 2, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

The City of Madison and Madison Parks are pleased to bring Ride the Drive, presented by Trek, back for its fifth year! We will be hosting Ride the Drive-Downtown on June 2nd from 10am to 3pm and Ride the Drive Westside August 18th from 10am – 3pm.

Volunteers Needed for Ride the Drive
Want to be a part of one of the coolest events in the city!! In order to make this popular event happen, volunteers are ESSENTIAL. The event is now less than a month away – and we need volunteers to sign up. To successfully run this event, about 150 very cool volunteers are needed. As of today, we only have a couple of dozen volunteers who have signed up. If you have enjoyed Ride the Drive in the past, but haven't yet volunteered – Sign up to help this year! Bring your friends or family along – volunteer for a couple of hours, get a very cool RTD volunteer t-shirt and spend the rest of the day showing off your cool RTD volunteer t-shirt while riding your bike around the event. Be a part of this fun Madison event!

What is Ride the Drive?
It is a community event that turns Madison's signature streets into a public promenade that is open to cyclists, walkers, rollerbladers, and residents out to enjoy car-free streets. These popular events have drawn over 20,000 attendees.   Ride the Drive is more than just a bike ride - with music, activities, and fun stopping points along the way - there is something for everyone.

The Downtown route will be the same as year's past, featuring the iconic streets downtown is known for, including Capitol Square, East Washington, and John Nolen Drive. Also like last year, there will be four different "villages" attendees can stop at along the five mile loop, with activity and information booths sponsored by area organizations.

The Westside Ride the Drive will have more of a Block Party feel, highlighting the neighborhoods surrounding Regent St. and South Hill Dr. Complete maps of the Ride the Drive Routes can be found on the Ride the Drive Website.

There are many different ways for the community to get involved in this year's Ride the Drive. Corporations are welcome to help sponsor the event, while local businesses and organizations can host an activity, have a booth along the route, or give in kind donations to our drawing.
