The 13th Annual Crooked Path Bike Tour presented by Silver Circle Sports Events is a casual ride through scenic Kettle Moraine on flat & rolling hills. The vast majority of the roads are small & very lightly traveled through the countryside. Riders will pass through small towns and villages such as Dousman, Summit, Rome, Sullivan, Hellenville, Ixonia & Watertown.
Distances include something for everyone 20K, 60K & 100K. All three distances start and end at Bicycle Doctor, 105 N. Main Street, Dousman, WI 53118. A free lunch will be served at the finish line. Additional food and beverages will be available.
The Crooked Path Bike Tour was founded in 2002 by Tammy Foltz and the Pabst Farms YMCA. Silver Circle Sports Events, LLC was proud to assume the race management and promotion in 2013 for the Crooked Path Bike Tour. Tammy and the YMCA have set a strong foundation for the event and we look forward to building on their foundation.

Helmets are required. Helmets are required. Did we mention helmets are required. Knee pads, elbow pads optional.
Sure why not. As Greg Lemond once said "it never gets easier, you just go faster."
Can I bring my pet on the ride with me? No.
We provide discounted family registrations to encourage parents to ride with their kids. The registration process is a little cumbersome so bear with us. A family rate includes up to 2 parents and 2 children from the same household. All family members must participate in the same distance. When registering, a parent must register and sign the waiver on behalf of the additional family members. When registering you will be asked for the name, age, sex and birth date of the additional family members as well as what distance the family would like to participate in. All the information must be included or the registration will not be accepted. You will also be asked for Tshirt sizes of all the members. Sorry no race day registration for families.
