Bratfest Ride


Announcing a new ride for Sunday, May 21 st to kick off Brat Fest!

About the Ride

Benefitting the Badger Honor Flight, Capital Brewery and the Saris Cycling Group are teaming up with Brat Fest to sponsor a ride through the rolling hills of Madison’s West side.


About Badger Honor Flight

Badger Honor Flight is a regional affiliate of the national Honor Flight Network. The purpose of the Honor Flight Network is to ensure that WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War and terminally ill veterans from any war have the opportunity to see the memorials that have been erected in their honor. The Honor Flight Network provides all amenities to the veterans, including all transportation, meals and lodging.

Everything is free to the veterans because of how much they have sacrificed for this great country already.

Our goal is to raise $35,000 to send half of a flight of 100 veterans to our nation’s Capital. We are ever grateful for the sacrifice they gave to our country and this bike ride allows us to honor their services.
