Come Relish the Rolling Amish Countryside in Pardeeville, WI
Saturday, July 22, 2023 (probable date)
It's Will be our 21st Annual!
The date is not locked in until March when we can reserve the shelter, so its the probable date.
We will most likely have the same routes as last year (we never know for sure due to construction, etc. until a few weeks before so check back!) The finish Party will be at the Caddyshack as usual too! Dian is finally getting to retire! But no worries, the Caddyshack is in good hands, see more below!
The fantastic 1/2 pound Caddyshack burgers will be served for FREE
to all riders and volunteers! We will also have beer and side dishes! We will have lots of chairs there, but you may want to bring a camp chair to assure yourself a seat! Michael Drake
will be entertaining us as well! Some people even like to take a refreshing dip in the lake at the end of their ride before they head over to the Caddyshack!
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. (The map and more complete info are also on entry form.) We pedal our bikes on one of four route distances and then have a party at the Caddyshack bar, complete with a Free HUGE 1/2 pound Shack Burger, beer, soda, side dishes, music and camaraderie! This year we will even have some fresh Amish PIE as long as it lasts!
All of this for a mere $45! 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, 32, 40 or 57 miles. Each loop will be well marked and have rest stops. You can download cue sheets HERE. Note, these routes may change a bit.. check here the week before the ride!
Registration 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!
Breakfast Burritos are included... and are at the first rest stop on all routes (made with fresh eggs purchased from Amos, our Amish friend! We also have a second rest stop with snacks, water and energy drink. On the 32, 40 and 57 mile route you will find a rest stop with snacks located at Mischlers Amish Grocery Store! On the 57 mile route, there is another rest stop at another Amish Variety store (which will also be sellling delicious baked goods!) known as Stoney Acres Variety!Be sure to stop in and shop at every opportunity you can! 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!)
Pedal and Party Well with Others... the Amish Community!
We love our Amish Community Friends and they love having us! But they did ask me to mention something... I know its fun to get photos of your Amish biking experience! But the Amish do not like to have their photo taken. So Please, do not ask them to pose for a photo, or take a photo of them. (A distant photo of a horse and buggy or plow is fine.) Please respect their wishes. This is why you won't see any photos of the Amish people on my website. Let's make the saying on the back of the jersey ring true! Thanks for understanding!

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, thats TWENTY years! Several years after we started the ride, 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! And, come back and visit the Caddyshack bar the next time you are in Pardeeville, WI!
