We couldn’t help but post this awesome news! Madison B Cycle is offering 50% off of memberships from October 20th-24th. This is an amazing opportunity for folks to try out the bike share system for a fraction of the cost. $2.50 for a daily pass?! There’s not much in the world that you can purchase for $2.50. Not even a decent cup of coffee is $2.50 (assuming you tip your baristas)!
This means you can ride all around the city for up to 30 minutes per trip, dock the bike, checkout a new new one or the same one once docked, and continue on exploring. If that’s not a cheap date, then I don’t know what is.
Many of you will argue that you already own a bike or B Cycles are heavy or some other excuse. We live in an 8 bike house hold and we still find ways to use B Cycles. Often times if we have to drive downtown, but want to stay parked in the ramp, we’ll B Cycle to get to a restaurant, bar, or meeting place to get their faster than walking. B Cycle is a great way to get to the Badger game without having to find a place to park the bike or worry about your your bike if you stay longer than the Bike Valet allows.
I personally love B Cycle because I don’t always want to leave my fancy bikes downtown. It’s a huge pain to lock up my bike with several locks, remove all the lights, and other easily snatched items. B Cycles have built in lights, baskets, and locks! Oh and just docking it is way faster than having to lock a regular bike.
Honestly I could spend all day telling you why B Cycle truly kicks ass, but I’d rather you buy a day pass or cheap membership to try it for yourself 🙂
I should also state that UW Students and Employees get discounts on B Cycle memberships and I believe it’s for even less than the $32 for the annual pass, so B sure to check that out!
