Bratcakes at Madison Bike Week: A Delicious Comeback!

Saris serves Bratcakes during Madison Bike Week

Hello, Bratcakes fans!

After a couple of years away, we’re thrilled to announce that Bratcakes is back! We made our return at the Veloround during Madison Bike Week, and despite a little rain, the event was a smashing success. The aroma of sizzling bratwurst and pancakes filled the air, bringing smiles and delicious food to the community.

The Numbers Are In!

This year, we served over 200 hungry cyclists and community members, an incredible turnout that showcases the growing love for Bratcakes. Here's a breakdown of what we dished out:

  • 20 pounds of Bavaria Haus brat: That’s right! The juicy, savory bratwursts were a hit, with people coming back for seconds.
  • 15 pounds of pancake mix: Fluffy, golden, and oh-so-delicious, the pancakes flew off the griddle.
  • 64 oz of syrup: We went through bottles of syrup, ensuring every pancake was perfectly drizzled with sweet, sticky goodness.
  • 3 gallons of coffee: Special thanks to Just Coffee for supplying the piping hot bike fuel.

Braving the Elements

The weather wasn’t entirely on our side this year. It started with a downpour, but that didn’t stop the dedicated cyclists from showing up and enjoying the event. They braved the rain, and once the sun came out, the atmosphere was even more vibrant and cheerful. The sense of community and resilience was truly inspiring.

A Community Celebration

Madison Bike Week is all about celebrating the joy of cycling and the vibrant community that supports it. At the Veloround, we saw families, friends, and solo riders come together to enjoy a meal while hitting the trails. It was heartwarming to see everyone bond over food, laughter, and their shared love for biking.
