United Performing Arts Fund to Hold Socially Distanced Ride for the Arts

The United Performing Arts Fund (UPAF) will hold its popular annual UPAF Ride for the Arts, which since 1980 has raised money for UPAF programs in Eastern Wisconsin. The ride will be socially distanced to ensure cyclists’ safety and takes place over three weekends in June at various locations: Sunday, June 6, at Veterans Park, in Milwaukee; Sunday, June 13, at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts, in Brookfield; and Sunday, June 27, at Coal Dock Park, in Port Washington.

Participants can select a weekend and plan a route with the Ride Spot app. Routes are on local bike paths, and cyclists may ride at their own pace. Upon arrival at the destination, participants’ bike bibs will gain them entry to travel through the “Ride Series Reward Station” where UPAF performing arts member groups will perform.

Registration for a single-series event is $45, or $65 for the three-day series; children 12 and under ride free. Registration fees cover the cost of the bike bib and UPAF 2021 Ride for the Arts T-shirt. Cyclists can register at various Wheel & Sprocket locations throughout the Milwaukee area.
