On Saturday morning, June 8th, we will commence the Kettle Camp Out 200 charity ride and ride 100 miles from Chicago to Kettle Moraine State Forest in Wisconsin where riders will recover, hang-out, eat, drink, and camp out overnight before riding 100 miles back to Chicago the next day on Sunday, June 9th. All money raised by the Kettle Camp Out 200 charity ride will go to the FixXxiE Racing junior track program, which will bring youths from Hyde Park's Blackstone Bicycle Works to race at the Thursday Night Track Racing series at the Ed Rudolph Velodrome in Northbrook from May through September. Everyone is invited to join the fundraising effort by riding with us from Chicago to camp out at Kettle Moraine State Forest and/or by sponsoring riders who are participating in the charity ride. If you have any questions please contact us at email@example.com.
