Still time to register for the BayCare Clinic Century ride

Tue, May 30, 2017

About the BayCare Clinic Century: “We’ll take you up into Door County, Kewaunee County, Brown County, a lot of really nice areas,” Dr. Steven Schmidt, a plastic surgeon with BayCare Clinic and a cycling enthusiast, tells NBC 26’s “Wisconsin Tonight.”

 

What is the BayCare Clinic Century Bayshore to Lakeshore?

It’s a non-competitive cycling event taking place on Saturday, June 3 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is sponsored by the BayCare Clinic Foundation. There will be 20-, 60-, and 100-mile courses. It’s part of the BayCare Clinic Bikes community wellness initiative which promotes bicycling as a healthy, family-friendly and safe activity.

 

Where does it take place?

The ride starts and ends at BayCare Clinic’s corporate headquarters at 1035 Kepler Drive in the I-43 Business Park on Green Bay’s far east side. Participants will ride through scenic farmscapes, gently rolling hills and shoreline vistas in parts of Brown, Kewaunee and Door counties. We’re encouraging riders to stop along the way and visit attractions they might not have noticed before – Heritage Park in Algoma, Country Ovens in Forestville, Parallel 44 Vineyard & Winery in Stangelville, and more.

 

Why should I participate in this ride?

The Century ride offers an opportunity to jump-start your summer fitness efforts. It’s not only a fun, family-friendly activity, it’s also good for you. Some biking benefits include:

  • Improved cardiovascular fitness
  • Increased muscle strength
  • Relieved stress
  • Improved balance and stamina
  • Strengthened core
  • Opportunities for families to enjoy a fun and healthy workout together

 Is this open to all ability levels or do you have to be a pro rider?

The BayCare Clinic Century is open to participants of all ability levels, from serious cyclists and weekend warriors to casual riders looking for a fun, healthy family event.

 

What do I bring on ride day?

A helmet is necessary to participate. You will also want to bring things that make sense for a bike ride – a water bottle, snacks, a light jacket in case of bad weather, etc. We will have support vehicles on the courses to help if you should have a problem with your bike or other issues.

 

How do I register?
