    With over 30 years under it's belt, the ride starts at Best Place & ends at ???. This annual movie-themed group
    ride attracts and unites young bucks and old dogs alike over a common love of bikes and beer.

    This ride averages 20 miles in length and includes multiple "rest stops" throughout downtown Milwaukee. The catch? You don't know which bars until the day of the event. We like to keep things exciting. The event also features a new movie theme each year. Past themes have included The Big Lebowski, Napoleon Dynamite, & Pee Wee's Big Adventure. Participants have the opportunity to dress up, participate in wildly entertaining contests and have a plain 'ol good time.
