Shiverwest 24: The shorter, cooler cousin of the summer original
In an attempt to impress the judges of the Milwaukee Awards for Neighborhood Development Initiative (MANDI) Awards, the organizers of the Riverwest 24 threw together the first ever Shiverwest 24, a mini version of the summertime bike race that, while cooler and more compact, still managed to feature all the fun of the full-fledged original.
Many judges were unaware of how exactly the Riverwest 24 has been catalyzing the neighborhood with an unsanctioned 24-hour bike race over the last 10 years, so organizers helped arrange a casual winter version that could be completed over the lunch hour. Despite the compact format, very little was missing from the presentation (though there were no ice sculptures, surprisingly).
You can see photos of the fun below.
