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 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. If you want to ride longer or faster, that’s fine too. Ride your ride. We just want to see more people on bikes regardless of their experience, skill 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.
Please come prepared with a flat kit and tools for your bike. Not all bikes are the same, you are responsible for yourself. Helmet required, good energy and vibes highly encouraged.
Each week we will ride the McFarland 18 route found here unless otherwise posted. We aim for one longer ride about 30-40 miles each month.
For 2023, there will no longer be a femme-only ride on the last Monday of the month. I hope that the space every Monday is comfortable for all to join. Fear not however as there will be other opportunities for femme-only rides in the summer, just not on Mondays.
