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 roughly every 25 miles with traditional nutritional offerings such as energy bars, gels, chews, 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.
Beyond the scientific nutrition provided by our sponsors, the rest stops in Monroe and Beloit will have specially catered lunches. This will include local food hosted by award-winning Roth Cheese in Monroe, for those who love taking a culinary leap. Farm to table good prepared by chef Peter Sandroni of la Marenda and Engine Company 3 will be catered in Beloit. Peter is not only a great chef who will source all the ingredients from Wisconsin farmers, he is an avid cyclist so he knows the nutritional needs of riders. Lunch for Two-Day riders will be in Monroe and lunch for One-Day riders will be in Beloit. Beloit will feature a new menu including chicken pistou wraps, quinoa and potato salads, as well as vegan minestrone soup. We will also have vegetarian and gluten-free options available at both lunch stops. More details on the menus to come!
Two-day riders who are spending the night in Beloit will have dinner on their own. We will be providing a list of nearby restaurants within walking distance of the host hotels.
In Kenosha, we are adding more options for the finish party. Derango’s, the Pizza King of Kenosha will again be serving pizza’s, Philly beef sandwiches, Italian sausage bombers and soft pretzels in addition to soda and water. We will be adding other vendors to lessen some of the lines that we had last year so stay tuned! And, of course, Public Craft Brewery will be on hand to serve their local craft beers. If it is hot, you can jump in Lake Michigan and we will also have a shower truck waiting for you if you want to clean up a bit after your epic day.
