The City of Madison and Madison Parks are bringing back Ride the Drive for its fifth year.
Two events are being hosted in 2013, a downtown Ride the Drive on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and a west side version on August 18 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Ride the Drive turns Madison's signature streets into a public promenade that is open to bikers, walkers, rollerbladers, and those out to share in the experience and atmosphere.
The event is expected to bring 20,000 people out to ride, walk, and skate on the route, while enjoying live music, food, and participating in various activities.
The downtown route stretches from John Nolen Drive to the capitol square, areas motorists will definitely want to avoid on Sunday.
