Join The Schlick Team at Fat Tire Tour of Milwaukee 2018!

Coming up in 2 weeks, on June 16th, 2018, is the 34th happening of Milwaukee’s longest running cycling event, The Fat Tire Tour of Milwaukee. Originally billed as a bike ride through the seedy underbelly of Milwaukee, with stops at dive bars and pubs, the ride has morphed into an event that draws nearly 500 attendees each year with a movie-themed group ride uniting cyclists over a common love of bikes and beer.

Schlick Cycles loose-knit team of owners and riders will be along for the action so be sure to say howdy!

This year’s theme is Young Milwaukeestein, an homage to Young Frankenstein, Obviously!

The ride route varies from year to year but is generally a casually paced ride covering 15-25 miles over a 6-7 hour span.
