Distances: 10, 25, 45, 65, virtual

The Rotary Ride, a non-competitive bicycling event, will be held Saturday, May 22, 2021. The ride will start and finish at Cedar Creek Park in Cedarburg. As a fundraiser, proceeds from the Rotary Ride will be used to fund the hosted by the Cedarburg-Grafton Rotary Club's vocational & technical scholarship program and to support local charities.

There will be four in-person fully supported routes offered for individuals and families of all abilities as well as a virtual option. A 10-mile family-friendly route will head out on the relatively-flat Interurban Trail. Longer, and hillier, routes of 25, 45, and 65 miles will traverse the scenic roads of Ozaukee County. There will be rest stops with refreshments on each route. Local bike shops and high school mountain bike clubs will provide SAG and mechanical support.
