Yo, yo. So I am indeed planning milwaukee 2.0 for later in the summer, which will include both a race category and a relaxed category and hopefully we'll get a big ol' group for that!

First though, a challenge.

Milwaukee there and back. same day. that's 160 miles. one day. My buddy casey is in, are you?

June 13.

Obviously we travel light, fast and self-sufficient and at a fast clip (20 mph avg), with a brief stop in milwaukee for beers and lunch then turn it around and head on back. 6 AM start. return before dark. Emergency bailout provided by metra.

Do you like the imposing name? You in?

Route TBD Im gonna see if we can find a more direct route, but should be more or less similar.

Cool. Fenders came off for Bike The Drive, I'll get a CO2 pump so I can go rackless.

I like the name a lot. Is it a new spelling emphasizing the "u - turn" in Milwaukee/Milwuakee?
you're going to miss the naked ride for this?! now i KNOW you guys are crazy.

this weekend would be way better, since you can catch a bike polo tournament once you get to MKE.
yeah well this weekend i'm in sfo and the 13th is the last weekend before my big ride.

I would definetly like to join. I was initially thinking of biking to Milwaukee from the Kenosha metra stop that Saturday but doing the whole sounds more challenging. Are you guys using road bikes or single speeds? I will more than likely just go one way with you guys as I planned on spending the night in Milwaukee with my sister and friends before heading back Sunday. 20 mph average sounds tough if I bring the touring bike with gear, but definetly doable if I bring just the road bike and give my sister the gear to carry. Where are you guys planning on leaving from?
yup, that's def me. i live right on the corner I keep spotting you on (roscoe and damen)

Is that you that keeps spotting me riding on Damen?
oooh this sounds fun. and not so fun.

I wish the ride was one day later. Sundays and Mondays are my open days
And people think I'm crazy for doing Milwaukee's Miller Lite Ride for the Arts on a singlespeed. :) I hope to meet you guys for lunch!
