Pedal Point Rally

Save The Date!

Friday, July 31st & Saturday, August 1st, 2020

This year we will be merging the Midwest Recumbent Rally and the Bike for Boys & Girls Club ride into one fantastic new event – the Pedal Point Rally!  All proceeds from the ride and registration will go to support our local chapter of the Boys & Girls Club of Portage County, which provides a fun, safe and healthy place for hundreds of area kids to go after school every day, as well as during school and summer breaks.  To learn more about the Boys & Girls Club, which is a non-profit organization, you can visit their website here.

The Pedal Point Rally will be a two day event featuring the rides you know and love, as well as a Friday social hour & dinner, Vendor Fair & Test Rides, Saturday afternoon fun & games, and Saturday night evening entertainment from the popular Spicy Tie Band, as well as a beer garden & local food trucks.
