Welcome to the Monday 40, a place for all types of cyclists to come together for a party pace ride on Monday nights either in person or in spirit. Ride with a group of people based out of Madison, Wisconsin, gather your friends in whichever place you call home, or just do your own thing. It’s all about getting some miles in on what could be argued as the least favorite day of the week.
Ride your ride and what you feel comfortable with. We love bikes and want to ride with other people that love bikes. The goal is to ride a route between 20-40 miles but feel free to ride whatever your heart desires. Routes will rotate each week so be on the lookout for weekly updates. Some people are packing in long-ass rides over the weekend so a nice 20-mile ride to shake things out with fellow riders might be up their alley. Some people are pushing themselves to knock out 20 miles and it makes us stoked to be on that journey with them as well. If you want to ride longer or faster, that’s fine too. Ride your ride. We just want to see more people on bikes no matter what their experience, skills level, what they wear, how fast they ride, or who they love. Riding belongs to everyone and we welcome all levels and types of riders to join in on the Monday 40.
Oh and this ride is founded by a woman so let’s get more women on bikes and smash the patriarchy! The last Monday of the month is a WFTN-B (woman, femme, trans, non-binary) only ride, so mark your calendars. If you identify as a woman and feel comfortable in a feminine space, this ride is for you.
We will try and change up the route so we aren’t doing the same one each week. Find the route in the Route 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
We rollout from Orton Park at 6pm sharp. The ride that leaves on time. We welcome all newcomers, meet our other fellow MOFOs, discuss the route, safety, and other PSA shenanigans.
