We know you need a lot of fuel to ride 175 miles, so our Ride Across Wisconsin features some of the best food you will find on any ride. We have rest stops every 25 miles with traditional offerings like Bonk Breaker performance nutrition bars, gels, chomps, electrolyte drinks to fuel your Ride Across Wisconsin. We also add some treats like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, brownie bites, cookies and other treats so you can mix it up a bit.
We feature two lunch stops, one in Monroe and the other in Beloit, because some riders want to eat at different points. New this year, our lunch stops will be catered by Peter Sandroni, the awesome farm to table chef owner of La Meranda and Engine Company 3 in Milwaukee. Peter is not only a great chef who will source all the ingredients from Wisconsin farmers, he is an avid cyclist so he knows how the nutritional needs of riders. They also make their own delicious soda, with natural ingredients and not high fructose corn syrup. They can even add electrolytes to the soda, so stay tuned for the lunch menu and cool flavors he comes up with for RAW!
Two-day riders who are spending the night in Beloit will have dinner at a party at Riverside Park from 6pm to 8:30pm. The party is hosted by the Rock Trail coalition. Their members will be serving locally prepared pulled pork, chicken and vegetarian sandwiches, and sides. Beer and soda will be sold separately with all proceeds going to the Rock Trail Coalition to help them complete their trail network around Beloit.
Entertainment will be provided by Tara and the Dirty Sheetz. Tara Sheetz is Beloit native and five-time Ironman competitor!
After the party ends, riders are welcome to camp indoors at the nearby Beloit YMCA for $30. Anyone who registers will also have access to the pool and showers at the Y. Again, all the proceeds will benefit the Rock Trail Coalition.
At the finish party in Kenosha we will have hot pizza and Italian sausage bombers waiting for you! You can wash that down with a cold one from Public Craft Brewing of Kenosha poured in your RAW finisher beer stein. If it is hot, you can jump in Lake Michigan and we will also have a shower truck waiting for you if you ant to clean up a bit after your epic day.
