    B-cycle stations close down for the winter season

    Madison B-cycle is closed for the winter as of Thursday, December 11th.  Please plan your transportation accordingly.  Some stations are removed to facilitate city snow removal, while others are powered down for the season.

    2014 has been an awesome season:  we broke 100,000 trips for the first time since our launch in 2011!  But all good things must come to an end, and the system will be in hibernation for the winter. 

    We will reemerge in March 2015 ready to roll - See you in 2015!

    Popular hand-painted bikes return for second year
    (Madison, WI) - Madison B-cycle, Dreambikes of Madison, and The Boys and Girls Club of Dane County will unveil a whole new line of custom-painted ArtBikes on August 1st at Union South. Kicking off at 4pm, the launch event will showcase 18 Madison B-cycles hand-painted by youth members of the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County. The artists, along with the Boys and Girls Club’s Michael Johnson, will be present to showcase the unique works of active art.
    For each ride taken on an ArtBike, Metcalfe’s Market will donate $1 to the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County. 2012’s ArtBikes garnered massive attention, and proved to be a B-cycle rider favorite. While the original ArtBike fleet of 11 made up only 3% of B-cycles in Madison, they accounted for 10% of the trips taken in August of last year.
    “The bikes provide a great venue to showcase the talents of the Boys and Girls Club kids because they’re rolling around all over Madison,” said Madison B-cycle Manager Claire Hurley. “I’m happy we can provide extra visibility to such an important organization in our community. Last year we saw riders intentionally seeking out ArtBikes to make sure they had taken a ride on each one!”
    After being painted by Boys and Girls Club members, the ArtBikes B-cycles were weatherproofed by Trek Bicycle and reassembled by DreamBikes of Madison. The bikes will be in circulation August 1st through December 15th.
