Note:

Due to a scheduling issue, this ride date was changed from June 30th to July 28th.

Richard Schwinn, in conjunction with Waterford Precision Cycles, is sponsoring a factory tour and group ride at his factory in Waterford, WI. This will be a joint ride with the Kenosha/Racine Bike Club. The ride will be self-paced (queue sheets provided) with sag support.. The routes for each ride (3 options - 25, 42, or 60 miles) will start from the Waterford Factory at 8:45 so allow some time to unload and setup.  Plan to ride through beautiful Wisconsin scenery between Waterford and Waukesha, then back.

Richard Schwinn will give tours of the factory between 8:00 and 8:30. This is a great opportunity to see how top quality bicycles are built.
