Kenosha County hosting ninth annual Fall Wheel Ride Saturday

Riders will start at Kennedy Park and bike 6.3 miles to the Pets Biergarten


Kenosha County is located in the southeastern corner of the U.S. state of Wisconsin. Its population in 2019 was estimated to be 169,561, making it the eighth most populous county in Wisconsin. The county is named after the county seat, Kenosha, the fourth largest city in Wisconsin.

Kenosha County Executive Samantha Kerkman invites bike riders of all ability levels to participate in the ninth annual Fall Wheel Ride to Petrifying Springs Park this Saturday (Sept. 24).

“It’s a great time of the year to get out and explore our county parks, and the Fall Wheel Ride is the perfect opportunity for families to get out and see some of the beautiful sites of our county,” Kerkman said. “I hope to see you there.”

Riders will start at the City of Kenosha’s Kennedy Park, 4051 Fifth Ave., at 9 a.m. sharp and ride to the Petrifying Springs Biergarten, 5555 7th Street. Kenosha County Sheriffs deputies will bike alongside riders to and from the Biergarten. The event flyer and route can be found at

Riders are invited to participate in a post-ride yoga session, hosted by Warrior Poet Yoga instructor, Stephen Willis.

The post-ride get-together also coincides with the latest installment of Saturdays in the Park with Sam, a series of informal office hours that Kerkman has been holding in county parks throughout the summer. Kerkman will be at the Biergarten from 10 to 11 a.m. to meet and greet constituents.
