Welcome to the Monday 40, a place for bike people to come together for a casual ride on Monday nights either in person or in spirit. Ride with a group of people based out of Madison, WI, gather your friends in whichever place you call home or just do your own thing. It’s all about getting some miles and smiles on what could be argued as the least favorite day of the week. Now it can be the best day of the week with the Monday 40.
The Madison chapter is a no-drop ride so no one is left behind. We just love bikes and want to ride with other people that love bikes. The goal is to ride around 20-40 miles but feel free to ride a shorter route if you aren’t feeling it and we will meet at the end if you choose to ride your own ride. Some of us are packing in long ass rides over the weekend so a nice 20 miler recovery ride to shake things out has been a better option for most of us these days. If you want to ride longer or faster, that’s fine too. We just want to see more people on bikes no matter what your experience, skills level, what you wear, how fast you ride or how slow you go. Riding belongs to everyone and we want to welcome all levels of riders to join in on the Monday 40, either in person or in spirit remember.
Oh and this ride is founded by a woman so lets get more ladies on bikes and smash the patriarchy! The last Monday of the month is our femme, WFTN-B (woman, femme, trans, non-binary) only ride, so mark your calendars.
We will try and change up the route so we aren’t doing the same one over and over. Find route in the Collection in Ride with GPS.
Find some peace in the day
Meet new friends, swap stories, get some exercise, have a beverage, relax, enjoy the night
Hit the rustic roads of Dane County, Wisconsin. There are cows, sandhill cranes, lamas, sunsets, deer and plenty of pick up trucks along the ways.
