UPAF Ride for the Arts

Sunday, June 2, 2019

The UPAF Ride for the Arts is Wisconsin’s largest one-day recreational bike ride. Event proceeds ensure the 14 Member Groups can focus their time on what they do best – creating, performing, educating and inspiring. Donations and pledges collected by our riders go back into the community and help keep the arts thriving in southeastern Wisconsin. Your pledge dollars mean more kids learn and excel in theatre, dance and music; more jobs are created, and more individuals and families come together to enjoy the arts.


  • Kids age 12 and under ride FREE (with registration) when accompanied by a registered adult.
  • The UPAF Ride for the Arts is a recreational ride, not a race. Ride at your own pace and select a route that suits you – 5-, 12-, 25-, 45-, and 70-mile routes.
  • Entertainment for all ages at the Finish Line Party.
  • You can boost your impact by collecting pledges (and earning great prizes!) and 40% of the pledge dollars you raise are credited directly to Next Act.

Next Act will be setting up a Ride team soon. Please continue to check back to join our team, or email us, and we will notify you when you can register.
