The Wisconsin AIDS Ride is a four-day, 300-mile journey through South Central Wisconsin. Each year we've taken a different route, visiting communities throughout the AIDS Network service area. Terrain in Wisconsin does vary. We try to mix up what to expect. Sometimes it's flat and other times the winding hills can be quite challenging!
For riders, we structure most of the day -- giving you a window to ride-out from Camp in the morning and specific times for different Pit Stops. Since this is a fully supported ride, you can expect to see lots of designated vehicles on the route there to assist you.
Route Cue Sheets
- Each morning, detailed information and route cue sheets will be distributed to riders and on-route crewmembers.
- Designated pit stops occur along the route. We encourage riders and participants to meet local residents and share information about the Ride when they obtain provisions and use facilities. All Pit Stops are have some sort of crew assistance at them.
- Water Stops are basic, allowing riders the option to refill their bottles and maybe get a snack.
- A step up is a U-Pit which may also provide a bathroom or other amenities for your convenience.
- We have two super Pit-Stops - AM and PM pit. These pits offer water and gatoraide, as well as enhanced snack options. You will see familiar four-day crew members who will cheer you on. In addition, Medical, Massage and Chiro crews will be there, as well as bike repair technicians from Machinery Row.
- You'll be craving that yummy lunch soon enough. Lunch Pit is like AM/PM pits with the addition of a more substantial meal option, massage and chiro. Just what you need to get fuel up, repair and go.
- Friends and families will have many opportunities to see riders at our designated cheering stations. Cheering station locations will be listed here.
- Throughout the Ride, there will be various check-in points to make sure all participants are safe. You will be required to check in during lunch and when you arrive at camp. If you leave the route at any time during the day or choose not to ride on a given day, you must contact a Ride official.
