Ride the Drive

In 2017, Madison Parks improved the route to reduce road closures and to feature three downtown area parks and this year is no exception. Participants can Ride the Drive by foot, by pedal or by wheel stopping along the four-mile route for family-friendly activities, food and entertainment at Brittingham Park, Olin Park and Law Park.  

Riders will experience the scenic views of John Nolen Drive in blissful quiet along Lake Monona. The RTD route is closed to motor vehicles from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm on the day of the event. John Nolen Drive, from Olin Ave. to Blair St. is the only main road closed for the event, allowing for continued easy access to and through downtown Madison.
