In other news, the 30th annual UPAF/ Miller Lite Ride is only two weeks away! I am very excited for this year's event on Sunday, June 6. The ride starts downtown Milwaukee on Water Street next to the Performing Arts Center. Riders have their choice of a 15, 25, 50 or 75 mile ride. This year there are two new routes: 43 and 65 miles. In the past I have done the 25, 50 and 75 mile rides. This year I may try one of the new routes. It is great fun for the whole family.
Money raised benefits the United Performing Arts Fund (UPAF) and helps support a number of theater, art and musical groups in the area.
