Community Fund

Serving the Cyclist

Set in the bucolic hills of Southwest Wisconsin, the Dairyland Dare offers a memorable day of challenging climbs, fantastic foods, superior support, and scenic splendor for cyclists ranging from the avid enthusiast to the world class athlete.

Serving the Community

Our charitable arm, Wisconsin Bikes for Good Inc., is a non-profit organization formed to benefit the many community groups whose members volunteer in support of the event. Between 18 and 20% of rider entry fees go directly to our volunteer causes. We are proud to say that since our start in 2006, we have been able to donate over $95,000 back to these great volunteer organizations. Details of these contributions can be found below.
