Ride The Drive 2018
410 S. Blair St.
Madison Parks is pleased to bring Ride the Drive back for its 10th year! Stroll, roll, pedal or glide to three downtown area parks on Sunday, June 3 from 11:00am to 3:00pm!
The 4-mile route, which is more park-focused, began last year and proved to be a success in reducing cost and closing fewer streets. Participants will continue to enjoy fun activities, entertainment and food at Brittingham Park, Olin Park and Law Park. Plus they’ll enjoy the quiet beauty of John Nolen Drive closed to motor vehicles from East Lakeside Street to East Wilson and Williamson streets. The minimal road closures for this event allow for continued easy-access to downtown Madison.
