Saturday, May 20, 2017 around Oshkosh
To celebrate National Bike Month and Fox Valley Bike Week, we're inviting bicycle riders to use the City of Oshkosh bike routes and on-street bicycle accomodations to visit participating businesses and organizations and collect stamps on a "Pedal Pass." Start at any one of our nearly 20 businesses you choose, then ride to as many as you wish, all while enjoying the sites and sounds of Oshkosh by bicycle!
New this year is a Bike Rodeo starting at 10am sponsored by East Central WI's Safe Routes to School program and the Winnebago County Sheriff's Office. Rain or shine, families should bring their bicycles and helmets! Parents are strongly encouraged to attend and participate with their children. Registration, helmet fitting and bike inspections begin at 9:30am with a safety overview starting at 10am.
All participants are invited to the Oshkosh Senior Center at 12:30pm to celebrate biking, health and safety. Raffle prizes will be given away, and light refreshments will be served. A special thanks to Oshkosh Communities at North High School for organizing the BikeOsh celebration event!

Meet in the Middle Trail Ride
Sunday, May 21, 2017 along the WIOWAUSH Trail
Fox Cities Cycling Association and several local municipalities are leading the second annual Meet in the Middle Bike Ride as a part of Fox Valley Bike Week. We're uniting the Fox Valley along the WIOUWASH Trail, which connects Hortonville to Oshkosh.
The Winnebago, "south end," ride starts at the Park and Ride at the intersection of County Road S and County Road Y (across from Bare Bones Brewery). Riders will "meet in the middle" at Trailhead Park in Larsen for the full 17-mile ride. The "north end" riders are starting in Hortonville heading south.
NEW THIS YEAR: Safe Kids Fox Valley will graciously be stationed at each starting point fitting helments for kids and providing ID tags free of charge.
Snacks will be provided at Trailhead Park along with fun games and prizes! For folks that don't want to ride the entire route, turn-a-rounds will be clearly marked along the trail. Riders can continue the full length of the WIOUWASH, or head back as they like.
Check out the Meet in the Middle Facebook event and let us know you're planning to ride! Or download the poster to share around town:
