Milwaukee’s most interesting bike race is happening this Friday and Saturday as hundreds of bikers take to the streets of Riverwest for the Riverwest 24, a 24-hour bike race/spectacle. You’re probably already saying to yourself “but Marcus, I didn’t even get in this year” or “I don’t even bike.” That’s okay, you can still ride it even if it’s only you counting your laps and testing your bicycling fortitude. Besides the riding of it, RW24 is also a huge all-Riverwest party with practically every bar and business bubbling with activity; bands, house parties and race-watching are all easy to do and surprisingly fun too. The four checkpoints that make up the race circuit are all places of general merriment as well on a night and day that sees Riverwest come to life.
