Madison B Cycle Offers 50% OFF Memberships!

bcyclehalfpriceweekWe 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!

Great Reasons to Visit Madison

Admittedly this video isn’t cycling specific, but it is specific to Madison and what our beautiful city has to offer. Most of the shots were taken on the UW Campus and there’s definitely more to the city than that, but we feel lucky to live in such a cool place.
