Bicyclists raise money at Bike-N-Brats event

WAUSAU (WAOW) -

Bicyclists battled Saturday morning's rain to check out some new rides and help people learn about the sport.

It was all part of the first Bikes-N-Brats event at Nine Mile Forest.

Riders were able to test out demo bikes from area bike shops.

There was also food on sale to help raise money for several Wausau area clubs.

Organizers said biking is growing in popularity in central Wisconsin.

"We're growing and at any given night, on a Tuesday night, we'll have 50 to 60 people show up and go out in three different groups so, it's getting definitely bigger and especially with the backyard that we have here, for mountain bike people, it's phenomenal," said Dennis Helke, Wausau Wheelers Bike Club President.

Organizers said about 100 people attended Saturday's event.

They hope to hold Bikes-N-Brats again next year.
