Read to Ride Program

The Herman “Winks” Gundlach Read to Ride Program


“I think reading is important because it makes you smart.”

Read to Ride is a Summer reading program for youth ages 6-14 throughout the western Upper Peninsula. The program encourages children to read during the summer months providing incentive by offering a prize drawing for each age-appropriate book a child completes.  Each summer the program awards 20 Mountain Bikes to individual readers selected through the prize drawing.

The more books a child reads, the more chances they receive to win a Mountain Bike.
