2012 UPAF Ride for the Arts
TCD recaps the UPAF Ride for the Arts with two flickr galleries and a YouTube video that captures the best of one of the nation's largest one-day bike rides.
All manner of riders, from kids just off training wheels to oldsters who got the rusty old bike out of the basement for the occasion, participated. Lots of tandem bikes were in the mix, as were riders with pricey bikes and aerodynamic outfits. The Miller Lite ride was fun and friendly, and the ride raised about $530,000 for Milwaukee’s non-profit performing arts organizations.
TCD was there, with a team of 13 riders and friends. We had fun meeting and greeting at the after party, including holding a photobooth in partnership with South Shore Cyclery and their stylish bikes (for full photos from these riders, see our Flickr set linked here). Photo editor Brian Jacobson, photo intern Benjamin Wick and video intern Garrett Katerzynske were busy all over the various courses and at the party. Check out their pictures and video to relive this great event. By the way, I’m the one in the yellow shirt. — Tom Strini, TCD Senior Editor.
