If you are looking for a reason to go bike riding east of the I, the county government is providing it.

Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser invites bike riders of all ability levels to participate in the Fall Wheel Ride to Petrifying Springs Park from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 2.

“This is a great opportunity to enjoy the fall colors and to celebrate bike riding in Kenosha County,” Kreuser said. “Kenosha County is seeking to improve and expand bike trails and to become a more bike friendly county.”

The Fall Wheel Ride came as the result of the recommendations from Kreuser’s Kenosha County Blue Ribbon Committee on Countywide Bicycle Facilities Planning and Development. The committee, chaired by Don Moldenhauer, suggested the county host a fall bike ride to keep the momentum going in support of improving county bicycle facilities.

The three suggested starting points are:

  • Simmons Island Park, 501 4th Ave. — 5.8 miles to Pavilion 1(near the Highway JR entrance) at Petrifying Springs Park;
  • Bose Elementary School, 1900 15th St. — 2.3 miles to Pavilion 1 at Petrifying Springs Park; and
  • Family Fun Ride at Petrifying Springs Park, 761 Green Bay Road — 1.1 miles from Highway A entrance to Pavilion 1 at Petrifying Springs Park.

Hot apple cider, popcorn and other treats will be provided by the Kenosha County Parks Department at Pavilion 1 for bike ride participants from 10 a.m. to noon.

There will also be educational materials, bike safety information from the Kenosha County Health Department and activities.
