ATV And UTV’s To Increase In The Area Due To Charity Ride

(Dodge County) Residents in Dodge County will see an uptick in ATV and UTV vehicles traveling on authorized road routes starting Thursday through Saturday. It is part of the 15th Annual ATV/UTV Charity Ride benefiting Make-A-Wish Wisconsin. Other impacted counties include Fond du Lac, Ozaukee, Sheboygan, and Washington.

Organizers say as this is only the second year the event will be in southeastern Wisconsin, the increase of ATV’s and UTV’s could cause some confusion. They ask that motorists and citizens keep an eye out and want the public to be aware of the event to eliminate any misunderstandings while attempting to keep everyone safe.

Heaviest traffic will be in Washington County on Saturday and dispersing on the north side of the city of West Bend. On Saturday, around 9:15 am to 10am, the vast majority of riders will be traveling through West Bend then crossing Highway 33 at Scenic Drive/Villa Park Drive heading north to road routes throughout townships north, east, and west of there.

Over the past 14 years, the event has donated over $199-thousand-dollars to charity. The event is hosted by the Kettle Moraine ATV Association (Washington County), the Wisconsin ATV/UTV Association (State of Wisconsin), and Lakeshore ATV/UTV Club (Ozaukee County).

Registration for Saturday’s Charity event will be early Saturday morning at the Washington County Fair Park and Convention Center. The event is open to the public and all are welcome. A riders’ meeting and group photo will take place at 8:45am with riders departing shortly thereafter. Riders can either ride with a prearranged leader or ride on their own in their own small groups.

Saturday evening activities begins at 5pm, for registered riders, with dinner included. The public is welcome after dinner beginning at 6pm. There will be raffles, silent auction items, and prizes awarded throughout the evening.

The evening events will conclude with a check presentation at approximately 9pm.
