About This Activity

Thank you to the riders who joined us last year on Sunday October 13, 2013, for the SEVENTH ANNUAL AFFF Bike Ride.  We appreciate the many kind comments and encouragement to host the event again next year, and we will! 

Once again this year we will treat all riders to an old-fashioned "Pig Roast" following their rides at no extra cost.   Plan your ride accordingly, as the Pig Roast will begin serving at 11:30 a.m.   We hope that you will join us on Sunday, October 12th 2014, come rain or shine, at the Richmond Township Fire Protection District's Fire Station for the seventh annual Richmond Associated Firefighter's Fall Fifty Bike Ride, hosted by the Richmond Firefighter's Association.  This year we will feature the same routes into southern Wisconsin from 20 miles up to 62 miles (100km). The metric century route has over 3,000 feet of climbing.  If you like hills, you'll like this route.

Routes are 62, 50, 36, 25, and 20 miles.  The terrain is flat to gently rolling with an occasional hill. (The 62-mile route has some BIG hills!)  Family rides are still encouraged to ride the Prairie Trail (crushed limestone) which is located right across the street from our fire station.  All road routes will have rest stops with food and beverages.  SAG wagon drivers will patrol the routes to assist you if you need help.  On site bicycle support will be provided courtesy of The Bike Haven (McHenry, IL).
