Photos by Nicole Braunsdorf, Jennifer Bartel, and Brian Jacobson — taken in shifts.

It was the most grueling fun many of these avid cyclists have seen in awhile. After bouts of heat, rain, and insects in the teeth, Milwaukee’s famous 24-hour marathon race came to a close Saturday evening. ThirdCoast Digest was there for photos, video (watch this site Tuesday for the latest “What’s Up, Milwaukee?”), and even one intrepid Managing Editor who rode in the tandem category and medaled in the event. Congrats, Erin!

You can see the pending finishing results and data at Riverwest24.com. The points system is a combination of laps completed and bonus points awarded for secret event stops where riders performed daring acts like getting RW24 tattoos, posing with superheroes, morning yoga and other actions too insane to list here.
