Join Bike Fitchburg for Pick Me Up At The Border! 2017. This is a 90-mile ride (This is NOT a race) that goes to the Illinois State Line and back via the Badger State Trail. The ride departs from the Capitol Square in Downtown Madison at 11:58pm on Friday, October 6th and heads down West Washington Avenue approximately 2/3rd of a mile until it meets the SW Commuter Path. At that point, riders turn right and proceed 6 miles to McKee Road, just past the bike roundabout.

The City of Fitchburg Police Department will escort all riders, as a group, across McKee Road, where the path turns into the Badger State Trail in the City of Fitchburg! At this point, you are on your own (we do, however, strongly encourage using the buddy system). Proceed for approximately 20(ish) miles to the Stewart Tunnel, drink some more water and head south to the border.

There will be a Friends of Badger Trail representative available at the start of the ride at the Capitol Square with passes available for purchase. Trail passes are $5 for the day, or $25 annually. Every registered rider will get a glow stick to wear on their person or to clip onto their bike. You DO NOT have to register for this event but there is a suggested donation of $15 cash only. 50% of the donations  are going to support the planning and construction of a project near the Old Fitchburg Depot along the Badger Trail between Adams Road and HWY “M”. These are matching funds so every dollar we raise will leverage that investment.
