Bike Tour of Middleton
Renewable Energy Installations
Presented by

Our annual Ride with RENEW bike tour highlights some of Wisconsin’s leading renewable energy installations. All event proceeds support RENEW Wisconsin’s ongoing work to protect and defend renewable energy in Wisconsin. In 2016, our fourth annual ride raised over $30,000!

Riders will travel approximately 22 miles on paved roads and bike paths to visit the innovative wind, solar and biogas facilities in scenic northwest Dane County. Stops will include the Epic Galactic Wind Farm, the Gundersen Health System + Dane County Biodigester, Sustainable Engineering Group's net-zero building, and the MG&E Middleton Shared Solar project.

The ride will start at BMO Harris Bank in downtown Middleton and end at Capital Brewery. Riders will stop on the route for complimentary tours from renewable energy experts and enjoy breakfast, lunch and beverages along the way.
