There’s not one, but TWO fantastic opportunities for Madison area cyclists to learn about cold weather riding. The first is Madison Bike Winter’s Annual Fashion Show. The fashion show is open to the public and is being hosted at Machinery Row Bicycles.
The show starts at 5pm this Sunday and is BYOB!
Fashions covered in the show will include everything form high-tech, top notch new items from a variety of manufacturers to great D.I.Y style outfits and finds from your local thrift store.

The second event is being hosted by the Wisconsin Bike Fed, Women & Bicycles, and Spoke Haven.
Join us November 12th (Wednesday)
7pm at the Wisconsin Bike Fed’s Madison Office
There’s a Women’s Winter Bike Panel consisting of ladies who work in the local cycling industry or have extensive experience with year round bike riding.
Topics covered will include clothing choices, accessories for on the bike, what types of bikes work best for winter riding, and any other topics attendees care to talk about. There will be a short introduction and overview from each of the panel members, then the rest will be open discussion time to allow for a range of questions.
Beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for all attendees. There’s also a small raffle package that each attendee will automatically be entered to win with some bike related goodies to get you on your way to riding through the winter!
Help CORP and Machinery Row raise money for a new off road trail in Madison
Capitol Off Road Pathfinders has teamed up with IMBA to develop a 4.5 mile section of trail at Seminole Park. Located at the intersection of PD and Seminole highway, and just off the Capitol City Path, the trail will be easily accessible by bicycle. The trail will double as a fantastic opportunity for cyclocross and beginner mountain bikers alike. Machinery Row is hosting a party to fund equipment rental for trail building: providing free beer, snacks, and schwag to all who attend.
Where do you come in? In order to enjoy the awesomeness, please bring $20 to partake in a raffle, get snacks, and locally brewed beer. The entry fee will get you a bracelet for edibles and one raffle ticket to win sweet prizes from our sponsors below. Additional raffle tickets will be available for $5. Fill your pockets! All money will go to CORP for the new trail.

A few of our bike loving friends are putting on a seemingly kick ass bike party. The funds from this shindig will benefit Madison Bike Polo. Madison runs deep with polo talent, but the facilities around here are pretty awful.
Madison Bike Polo is looking to raise some funds to not only sustain the sport, but to build proper polo courts for practice and tournaments. Madison has played host to a number of fantastic polo events over the years and we’d love to see the sport grow.
Word is that there will be some sweet silent auction swag to win. The Facebook event says there will be beer at the party, but it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to BYOB.
Ride from Machinery Row leaves at 8:45pm. Party starts at 9pm.
Hop on your bike and head to the party. Some of Madison’s best DJ’s will be there, so bring your dance pants!
