Early every August, several hundred cyclists begin the three-day CowaLUNGa bike tour to help raise funds for the American Lung Association of Metropolitan Chicago (ALAMC). The tour begins at the Gurnee Mills Shopping Mall in Illinois and travels up into Wisconsin with overnight stops in William’s Bay and Whitewater. Each day of the tour is about 60-70 miles of fun road cycling covering a total of 190 miles by the end of day three. This event is not a race but a well supported leisurely ride on safe, scenic roads with limited traffic. There are plenty of rest stops along the way as well as a choice of indoor or outdoor accommodations each night. Fundraising dollars help the ALAMC in their continued fight against lung disease.
