UPAF Ride for the Arts

Ready, set, ride! Get your family and friends together to celebrate the Milwaukee tradition of the UPAF Ride for the Arts on Sunday, June 3, 2018!

This Ride for the Arts has something for everyone, routes from 10-miles for families to 70-miles for the avid bikers, enjoy the beautiful view on your ride along the lakefront or take advantage of the only annual opportunity to ride your bike over the Hoan Bridge! 

Not a fan of biking? You can still join our team!

Join other First Stage families and fans to cheer on the bikers, drive a SAG vehicle, valet at the bike port, or help with event day registration. Email Gena Fischer at gfischer@firststage.org if you are interested in volunteering, or visit the UPAF Ride for the Arts website for more details.  Be sure to select First Stage as your volunteer group.
