    I am a newcomer to Madison! I recently moved here from San Diego and am currently a graduate student at UW-Madison for Environmental Conservation.

    What do you like about working at Madison BCycle?
    The people I work with are really nice and amazing! I also like fixing BCycle bikes so Madison can keep on riding!

    What is your favorite activity to do in Madison?
    When I have free time from bike fixing and studying, I like to play at the open mic at Tip Top Tavern.

    What is your favorite BCycle memory?
    When we had our first company lunch at Ian's Pizza. That place is great! Macaroni and cheese pizza forever!

    Meet one of our BCycle technicians, Mitch!

    Tell us a little about yourself!BHind the Scenes - Mitch
    I have been working at Madison BCycle for the past 2 years while going to school. I am a recent graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and will be attending Marquette Law School this fall.

    What do you like about working at Madison BCycle?
    My favorite part of working at Madison BCycle is getting to be outside, especially during Madison summers, and connecting with the Madison community. 

    What is your favorite activity to do in Madison?
    I love to bike around the lakes and enjoy a nice summer evening on the terrace.

    What is your favorite BCycle memory?
    My favorite memories are when I return peoples' belongings to them that get left in our baskets. Specifically, I remember returning a customer their cell phone and getting a little tip for my troubles!

    Meet Kevin, a recent graduate from the Wisconsin School of Business and summer BCycle business intern!

    Tell us a little about yourself!BHind the Scenes - Kevin

    I’m a Twin Cities native and recent graduate from UW-Madison with a BBA in Accounting. I’ll be headed back to school in the fall as part of the Master of Accountancy (MAcc) program at the Wisconsin School of Business in preparation to sit for the CPA exam. When I’m not saving the world from misstatements in financial reporting, I enjoy attending concerts and sporting events, jamming on plastic instruments hooked up to my PlayStation, and playing darts/billiards at the local watering hole.

    What do you like about working at Madison BCycle?
    The team we have here provides a fun atmosphere, and in running a small-staffed operation, every day brings a new opportunity to do something different whether it’s event promotion, social media campaigning, or business development and analysis.

    What is your favorite activity to do in Madison?
    Nothing beats a Badger football game day. There is a certain charm in waking up to tailgate earlier than I can typically roll out of bed for class during the school week.

    What is your favorite restaurant in Madison?
    I’m a big fan of Asian Kitchen off State Street. The place is the gold standard for serving a college appetite on a college budget!

    What is your favorite BCycle memory?
    I assisted in installing the docks, kiosk, and solar panel for our new station on Library Mall, which was certainly a “fish out of water” experience for this accountant. Tax returns? Easy. Power tools? Not so much.

  • #WhyIBCycle - Jack

    Meet Jack, a rising junior and SOAR program assistant at UW-Madison!

    Tell us a little about yourself!WhyIBCycle - Jack
    I'm going to be a junior at UW-Madison, and I am studying Computer Engineering and Computer Sciences. This summer I am working with the Center for the First Year Experience as an Orientation Assistant for the SOAR program.

    When do you use BCycle?
    I mostly use BCycle on work days for the SOAR program. It's a good, quick way to get from the SOAR center at Union South to home or the student advising hub at College Library. BCycle comes in handy if we need to transport supplies or just travel from one place to another in a timely matter.

    Why do you recommend bike sharing?
    I recommend bike sharing because Madison is such a bike friendly city! There are plenty of BCycle stations located throughout Madison, and it makes travel throughout the city fun and efficient. Additionally, for out-of-state students BCycle allows access to bikes without having to worry about bringing a bike or moving it around when the school year ends.

    Do you have a favorite BCycle memory?
    My favorite BCycle memory was my first ever BCycle ride. I had always been curious how the system worked, and I was excited when I had an opportunity to give it a shot. The computer geek in me was also impressed with the BCycle app (Editor's note: We think our mobile app is pretty slick as well!). I got on the app, planned my route, and had a fun ride around the city.
  • #WhyIBCycle - Susan

    by Morgan Ramaker | Jul 26,2017
    Meet Susan, President of Downtown Madison, Inc. and BCycle advocate!

    Tell us a little about yourself!Susan Schmitz
    I am the President of Downtown Madison, Inc. (DMI). DMI is a downtown advocacy membership organization of 500 members.  I work every day in downtown Madison and I commute to work from the near west side on my bike every day—all year round.   

    When do you use BCycle?
    I use BCycle for meetings during the day (that I need to attend) in the greater downtown area. It is easier to hop on a BCycle than to use my own bike—I love the basket for my purse and folders!

    Why do you recommend bike sharing?
    As our city urbanizes and becomes more dense, BCycle is the easiest way to get around quickly/safely and with no parking challenges!

    What is your favorite BCycle memory?
    Riding from Sardine Restaurant to the Union Terrace on a beautiful summer evening with a flowy silk skirt and no shoes (I put my shoes in the basket).  It was awesome!
