Biking for Babies cyclists will pedal from Niagara to Madison beginning June 19

KAUKAUNA — Since 2011, Biking for Babies has featured a Wisconsin presence on both the teams of cyclists and through support for pregnancy resource centers. This year, for the first time, wheels will be on the ground in the state. A Biking for Babies ride is scheduled for June 19-21. Cyclists will pedal from Niagara to Madison, approximately 300 miles, over three days.

“I thought it was a good idea to get Wisconsin involved a bit more because the (national) rides take place in the south and finish in Chicago, so we don’t quite get to Wisconsin,” said Sarah Voet, who will co-lead the ride with Kevin Biese.

The national Biking for Babies rides are scheduled for July 11-19. Teams will depart from Texas, Louisiana and Florida and converge in Chicago. The Wisconsin ride is designed to increase awareness and generate support. The overall goal for 2015 is $75,000. Last year, Biking for Babies collected $74,415.

  1. 55 million, in our country alone, since 1973. 55 million. There are no words. God is very longsuffering. May He have mercy on us.
