Milwaukee, WI – Milwaukee Pride and the Harley-Davidson Museum are proud to announce the return of the Ride with Pride Motorcycle Run on Saturday, June 8, 2019.

The world’s largest LGBTQ-themed motorcycle ride expects to have 500 motorcycles rolling through the streets of Milwaukee!

All bikes, all groups, all riders, all ages are welcome. This is a ride celebrating both the LGBTQ community and its allies, and the ride is open to all motorcyclists regardless of sexual or gender identity. All participants will receive a free same-day admission to PrideFest Milwaukee 2019.

Where and when? Meet at 10 a.m. at the Harley-Davidson Museum (400 W. Canal St.) for a pre-ride rally. The ride will depart the Museum at 11 a.m.

Ride with Pride Motorcycle Run is a one-hour, nonstop ride. We’ll take many twists and turns through your favorite neighborhoods before receiving a hero’s welcome at PrideFest Milwaukee. A Milwaukee Police Department motorcycle escort will lead the way for the safety and security of all riders.

What should you bring? A motorcycle and your usual riding gear is all you need. Show your pride! Pride flags or capes turn our ride into a celebration and we encourage you to bring them.

Harley-Davidson built an exclusive pin to honor this ride. Five hundred enamel pins will be handed out (for free) at the start of our ride. The pins won’t be for sale anywhere. Wear it with pride!

How do you get involved? There is no cost to participate and no advance registration is required. Simply show up at the Harley-Davidson Museum on Saturday, June 8th. Visit our Facebook event page to RSVP and learn more.

Questions? Contact event organizer Cormac Kehoe.

We thank Milwaukee Pride, Harley-Davidson Museum, Brewtown Rumble, and the Milwaukee Police Department for proudly supporting the motorcycle community and making this event possible!
