What an amazing month it has been! There is lots of news to report. On Sunday, June 6th I completed the annual "Miller Lite UPAF Ride for the Arts". I completed the 25-mile ride, although we rode from my house to the starting gate at the Summerfest Grounds. After the ride, we rode home on our bikes. Overall, we completed approx. 45 miles including the ride to and from the starting point. It was perfect weather: cool and cloudy, but not raining. After the ride there were festivities at the Summerfest Grounds. We got lots of free food and saw a skateboarding competition and some really cool performers including the Boulevard Theater and performers from the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. I will never forget this day.
If you are interested in a fun ride in Sheridan and Warnimont Parks then mark your calendar for Thursday, June 17th! This is the date for the 4th annual "Pedal in the Park with Pat" sponsored by our County Supervisor Patricia Jursik. Riders will meet at 6 pm at the Pavilion at area 1 in Sheridan Park. Bring your bikes and your helmets! There will be a 5-mile ride followed by a performance by the "Bluegrass Allstars". This band features Dan Nimphius and you will hear some great Bluegrass music featuring banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and bass. Sounds like a party! The public is invited so mark your calendar and make sure your bike is tuned up and ready to roll.
Pedal in the Park with Pat was a huge success. I really enjoyed the ride and the Bluegrass band. And we got to see the really cool kiosk built by a local Eagle Scout. What a great service project!
For Father's Day my wife and son took me to Polish Fest. The food was incredible and we all enjoyed the Fest.
