Join Team Friendship for a one-of-a-kind cycling adventure on Lake Michigan. You’ll pedal along Lake Michigan to support a cause that creates friendship and inclusion for people with disabilities on July 30.
“I’ve done lots of organized rides, but this has been by far the best experience. I’ve done rides with thousands of people, but without a mission attached, it was just a great day on the road. The focus is just on your individual time and the finish line. With Bike4Friendship, it was about making a difference in the lives of people with disabilities. The VIP experience, camaraderie, and the cause make it an unmatched experience.”

What's the general schedule like?
Sunday morning: The Ride! Start your morning with some pre-ride fuel and last-minute stretching before heading to the starting line with the team.
A full schedule with exact times will be available closer to the event time.
How do you handle safety?
There will be multiple vehicles following the bike route including a SAG (Support and Gear) vehicle and Wilderness First Aid (WFA) responders.
Cyclists will have the guide numbers and can be picked up if they need a break, need to be advanced up the route due to time constrictions, or have a bike issue.
Cyclists will be spread out over time due to varying riding speeds.
The routes will be well-marked and easy to follow. All cyclists will have access to the route on their phones with the Ride With GPS cycling route app.
