The Chris Kegel Foundation


MISSION: To continue Chris Kegel's commitment to improving lives by providing greater access to cycling, developing advocates and supporting the community.

GOALS: the Chris Kegel Foundation will serve three primary functions:

  • Make Cycling Better

    • Be a resource for targeted infrastructure improvements in our local communities.

  • Bring Riders Together

    • Using the momentum of the epic "Chris' Slow Roll", we aim to make this an annual joy ride through Milwaukee where riders of all abilities and motivations can join together to just enjoy the ride

  • Develop Cycling Advocates


2018 Projects/ Initiatives: Chris always looked for ways to create WIN-WIN ideas that could help provide leverage for projects to get off the ground. This year, the Foundation is focusing on returning dollars raised at 2017's slow roll to helping improve Milwaukee's Oak Leaf Trail System. In addition, we are organizing three ride events and sending local leaders to national cycling leadership conferences. (see here)


Tax-Deductible Donations can currently be made via our friends at PeopleForBikes who will issue a donation receipt for tax records and will hold funds in trust until the Chris Kegel Foundation receives non-profit status and is operational.
