Pedal and Party?
Pedal and Party in Pardeeville with a Purpose
(A.K.A. "PPPP") is a one day bicycle ride on the rolling Amish countryside around Pardeeville, Wis. (Pardeeville is about 35 miles north of Madison See map and more complete info on entry form.) We pedal our bikes on one of four route distances and then we head to the Caddyshack bar and have a party, complete with a Free HUGE 1/2 pound Shack Burger
, beer, soda, side dishes, music and commaraderie!
All of this for a mere $40!
Plus 100% of the profit from the ride goes to a great cause, Multiple Sclerosis!
We have 4 Routes to Choose From!
Choose Your Route:
12, 30, 40 or 60 miles. Each loop will be well marked and have rest stops. You can download cue sheets HERE

is open from 7:30 am to 9 am. Suggested start times are as follows: 60 mile at 8 am, 12, 30 and 40 mile at 9 am. We do not have a mass start, just head out when you are ready, but please don't rush, stop and smell the roses! This is not a race.
Not Your Average Rest Stops!
are included... and are at the first rest stop on all routes! We also have a second rest stop with snacks, water and energy drink. On the 30, 40 and 60 mile route you will find a rest stop with snacks located at an Amish Grocery Store!
Be sure to stop in and shop! There is also an Amish Bakery
you can visit along these routes! On the 60 mile route, we have a water stop at Meno's Grand River Oasis!
This is a Mexican restaurant/bar. Stop in and have some chips and salsa, or a burrito. Listen to the Jukebox, dance... meet some new friends! All routes return to the first rest stop before finishing.. but alas, breakfast will be over (this is not McDonald's, we dont serve breakfast all day!)

This Much Fun and it's All for a Cause?
What is the Purpose we are Pedaling and Partying for?
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease.
Today, there is no cure for MS, and with diagnosis occurring most frequently between the ages of 20 and 50, many individuals face a lifetime filled with unpredictability.
at the Caddyshack bar
has donated her time and burgers ever since we started this ride in 2002. Just a few years ago, her daughter was diagnosed with MS, so the cause has become personal for her. We are grateful to Dian and the Caddyshack for all they do and have done throughout the years! Give her a big tip! And, come back and visit the Caddyshack bar
the next time you are in Pardeeville, WI!
