Neenah Menasha Fire Rescue

How Long?  10, 25, 50, 75, 100 mile options!       ROUTES

Choose from 5 different routes for every skill level.  Our 10 and 25 mile routes takes you across the The Fox Cities Trestle Trail.  This is a Rails-to-Trail conversion of a causeway/trestle rail bridge, now a recreational trail bridge.  The 10 mile loops back through the cities of Neenah and Menasha with a rest stop at the Neenah Historical Society.  The 25 mile riders countinue on to the Friendship Trail end enjoy the country roads west of the City of Neenah.  A rest stop at Neenah/Menasha Fire Rescue’s fire station is always a highlight of this route.  

If you are looking for more of a challenge then sign up for the 50, 75 or 100 mile route lengths!  All of these routes take you north and east of the largest lake in the state, Lake Winnebago!  You will pass through High Cliff State Park and ride along the Niagra Escarpment.  Enjoy the views from the top before visiting the cities of Stockbridge, Potter and Sherwood where the local fire departments host the rest stops. 

Here are the recommended start times for our routes.  This is to ensure ample time to complete the course and hit the rest stops before they close.  You may start earlier but rest stops may not be open yet and SAG Wagon support may not on course yet.

10 Mile                              Start by 9:00 a.m.

25 Mile                              Start by 9:00 a.m.

50 Mile                             Start by 8:00 a.m.

75, 100 Mile                  Start by 7:00 a.m.

Proceeds from this year’s bike tour will benefit Neenah Menasha Firefighter’s Local 275’s Benevolent Fund.  Neenah Menasha Firefighter’s Local 275’s Benevolent Fund gives back to charitable organizations within the Cities of Neenah and Menasha, which are the two communities our Department serves. 

What’s Included?
Each rider will receive a goody bag, fully stocked rest stops, mechanical support at Jefferson School and SAG Wagons on the routes.  Enjoy a great meal provided by our friendly volunteers when you are done!  Those registering before May 21st at 11:00 p.m. will receive a dry wick t-shirt and the first 300 people to register will receive a free water bottle!  All rest stops are at local fire stations or a fire truck will be on site for you to check out!  The tour is open to the public and all ages and abilities are welcome!  This is a rain or shine event.
