Local bikers train for WI AIDS Bike Ride


MADISON (WKOW) -- Bikers in our area train for the Wisconsin AIDS Network bike ride.

Hundreds of people will participate in the ride to raise money for the AIDS Network in southern Wisconsin. The bike ride will be from August 1 to 4. The AIDS Ride started about 20 years ago as a way to build community, challenge people and raise money for the AIDS Network.

There have been numerous rides since then in cities all across the United States. The Midwest Rides began with the Heartland AIDS Ride, a 500-mile ride from Minneapolis, through Wisconsin, to Chicago.

Bikers who are training for this ride have a schedule in July they're trying to stick to. In July, participants are training 175 plus miles per week. One ride goal is 70 to 80 plus miles.

Watch Wake Up Wisconsin at 6:00 a.m. for a preview of this event.
