MENOMONEE FALLS (WITI) — Bicyclists this weekend took part in the “Promises to Keep” Triumph cycling tour — a three-day event to raise money and awareness for people with disabilities.

The event connects the communities of Madison, Milwaukee and Green Bay.

This charity event supports myTEAM TRIUMPH Wisconsin, a non-profit athletic mentoring program for challenged endurance athletes and Team RWB. Support raised is used to provide team-based character and relationship building programs for able-bodied and challenged athletes.

Each day of the event would incorporate a group bike ride, followed by Courage Celebration in which we will be providing a meal and an inspirational presentation in each of the three locations.

Up to 200 had the opportunity to ride in a supported group formation (with a military or motorcycle escort) through the scenic roads of Wisconsin.

Participants had the option to take on one or all three of the tour legs. Those athletes taking on all three legs and thereby covering 350 miles over the entire weekend were to receive a custom Triumph Tour Survival Strap.

“You know it’s our first year, and anytime you have a first year you never know how it’s gonna go, and we have a lot of dedicated riders that are coming with us, we are very happy so far with how it’s gone,”

The Triumph Tour schedule is as follows:

Friday, August 9th

Saturday, August 10th

Sunday, August 11th
