Richmond AFFF Ride - public ride

The Richmond's Associated Firefighter's Fall Fifty (AFFF) is hosting this ride.

Once again riders will be treated to an old-fashioned "Pig Roast" following their rides at no extra cost!

Plan your ride accordingly, as the Pig Roast will begin serving at 11:30 a.m. We hope that you will join us on Sunday, October 14th 2012, come rain or shine, at the Richmond Township Fire Protection District's Fire Station for the sixth annual Richmond Associated Firefighter's Fall Fifty Bike Ride, hosted by the Richmond Firefighter's Association. This year we will feature the same routes into southern Wisconsin from 20 miles up to 62 miles (100km). The metric century route has over 3,000 feet of climbing. If you like hills, you'll like this route.

Routes are 62, 50, 36, 25, and 20 miles. The terrain is flat to gently rolling with an occasional hill. (The 62-mile route has some BIG hills!) Family rides are still encouraged as the Prairie Trail (crushed limestone) is located right across the street from our fire station. All road routes will have rest stops with food and beverages. SAG wagon drivers will patrol the routes to assist you if you need help.

Register online by October 7th. Online registration is $20
Children ages 6 - 14 are $6 at all times, online or on site
Children 5 and under are free.


Parking opens at 6:30 a.m. On site registration is from 7:00 a.m. to Noon. 50-mile riders should register by 8 a.m. if not pre-registered, and start by 11 am.

T-shirts (long sleeve by popular demand) will be back and are best ordered ahead of time with your registration. A limited number of T's will be available the day of the ride. Long sleeve T's will be available for $15 for registrations received by October 1st. Sizes Adult Small to Adult XL $15, XXL and XXXL $16.

      Donna, I hope it clears enough to get a ride in, even if it were sunny, I'd still have to pass cause for some stupid reason I woke up at 3 and couldn't get back to sleep!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
