UPDATE: In compliance with the Governor’s Emergency Order #28, Ride the Drive 2020 is canceled. We are continually looking at alternate ways to safely encourage visiting parks and trails throughout Madison. We will also evaluate opportunities to promote recreational biking across Madison.

The tradition of a free event, promoting a healthy, active lifestyle continues at the 12th annual Ride the Drive. Check back to the LOCATIONS to see who and what are happening at each park. No matter how you experience RTD – by foot, by pedal or by wheel - there is no cost to attend Ride the Drive. Some vendors offer food or other items for purchase with cash and at some locations, with a credit card.

Pick up an RTD Prize Pass the day of the event at any Madison Park Info Booth, stop at three vendors at the three parks and return the completed pass at any Madison Parks Info Booth for a chance to win fun Parks prizes. The drawing will be held the week following RTD and you do not need to be present to win.


We're seeking volunteers to assist in the setup, cleanup and everything in-between.
