City preparing for Ride the Drive events

MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz joined "Ride the Drive" sponsors and community leaders to discuss details of two Ride the Drive events.

The first event is Sunday, June 6 from 10a.m. to 4p.m.

The second is on August 29 and will feature Trek Bicycle-sponsored athlete Lance Armstrong. Trek is promising that more details on the August Ride the Drive with Lance Armstrong will be available later this summer.

Mayor Cieslewicz says Ride the Drive is a community event that transforms some of Madison's streets into a public promenade.

During the event, roads along the six-mile route are open for participants to bike, skate or walk through some of Madison's signature streets.
