Get ready to be amazed by everything new for the 50 States Ride this year!

50 States Ride logo

Twenty incredible years in, we’re ready to take things up a notch on Saturday, September 23rd.


The 50 States Ride has seen participants navigate the state-named avenues for two decades now and each year’s event has drawn great people together, created awesome memories, and has been a ton of fun. Heck, people who met on this ride have gotten married (no promises though).

It’s always a joyful ride with good company, fully stocked pit-stops, and a great t-shirt that will confuse your out-of-town friends.

But now’s the time to make it bigger, better, and to give you more!


Here’s what you can look forward to at our bigger, better after party:



Stick around at the post ride party to eat, drink and revel in the shared experience of biking all over this awesome city. This year we’ve found a mega-spacious (and air-conditioned) venue with room to pack in more amenities and fun:

– Indoor bike valet: Stow and secure your bike so you can let loose!

– Food and drinks: Spread out at picnic tables with friends and nosh on a well earned lunch!

– Comedy show:  Brace yourself for curated digs and themed jokes aimed at bikers!

– Photo booth:  Capture the moment and celebrate your accomplishment!

– Games:  Take on challenges and compete to win!

– Raffle:  Bring home high ticket prizes!

– Social media wall:  Get creative yourself and see what everyone else is sharing!

– Sponsor row: Meet all the cool people and organizations who helped make this ride possible, and shop from vendors sharing great stuff!

+ other surprises!
