Wisconsin Bike Fed Hall of Fame Gala
Great weekend in Milwaukee seeing old cycling friends and enjoying Milwaukee at the Wisconsin Bike Fed Hall of Fame Gala.
Congratulations to Tommy's friend and 7-11 teammate, Tom Schuler, for being inducted into the Wisconsin Bike Fed Hall of Fame on Friday night.
It was fantastic to see some of the old 7-11 brothers come together in support of the event. Also great to hang-out with teammates from Cafe Hollander-Benelux, all the Wisconsin cycling enthusiasts, as well as participants from the Gitche Gumee GranFondo to celebrate cycling in Wisconsin and Tom Schuler's award.
For the silent auction, the Gitche Gumee GranFondo donated 2 free entries and a $50 Gift Certificate to the Rivers Eatery "Pay it Forward" board - - we are not sure who the highest bidder was, but when we find out, we will announce.
We were happy for the opportunity to make this donation to the Wisconsin Bike Fed and equally delighted to see so many people bidding on the chance to be part of the Gitche Gumee GranFondo. Can't wait for August 24th!
When you don't bring your bike, the next best thing is going for a run! We really enjoyed our time in the 3rd Ward Industrial District of Milwaukee and running along the shores of Lake Michigan - what a great city!
