The City of Madison has announced that there will be two Ride the Drive events in 2014.
Ride the Drive-Downtown will be Sunday, June 1st from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Ride the Drive-Eastside will be Sunday, August 24th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
It's the sixth year for Ride the Drive in Madison. The event closes streets to car traffic to allow people to bike, skate or walk the routes.
The downtown route will be the same as last year’s, featuring iconic downtown streets including Capitol Square, East Washington and John Nolen Drive.
The Eastside Ride the Drive will have more of a neighborhood block party feel, highlighting the neighborhoods surrounding Atwood Avenue and South Fair Oaks Avenue.
Complete maps of the Ride the Drive routes can be found on the Ride the Drive website.
