Stop #1 held in the 110,000 sq. ft. playland known as Ray’s Bike Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is officially in the books!
The day began early with a warm greeting from the staff at Ray’s. The Wisconsin crew is an amazing group of people and I cannot thank them enough for the amazing hospitality they showed us over the course of the entire weekend. Derek Slates & Jeff Downham run a clean and fun environment, providing a safe place for absolutely anyone to ride a bicycle indoors. Guaranteed to be the most fun you’ve had in years.
Registration ran from 9am-2pm so we took advantage of this time to indulge and explore the facility. Which in our terms is Ride it, and ride it hard! I personally had a blast, my crew of goons also had an amazing experience. Lyle (Ex-Amish) rode his rental bike so much through-out the day he could barely walk. When 10$ Bill Livingston wasn’t helping out judging, he was on the course with Teddy Pieper (The Battle Series Videographer) doing lap after lap. Before we knew it, the 2pm start time was upon us and we got straight to the business at hand.
