    by Martha Laugen | Sep 11,2015
    Sunday is the big day! Madison BCycle extends a warm welcome to all Ironman athletes, family and spectators! Here are a few key tips to make the very most of the weekend, using Madison BCycle!

    Fresh Legs!
    Use Madison BCycle to run your pre-race errands or get to dinner from your hotel. Download the BCycle Now! app for station locations and directions to the kiosk nearest you. Swipe your credit card for just $3 at any station kiosk and enjoy unlimited 30 min trips for the next 24 hours!

    Expo!
    Take a BCycle to our East Wilson or West Wilson stations for easy access to the Monona Terrace and IRONMAN Village. Visit the Trek Trailer on the terrace! BCycle cargo baskets make it easy to haul that new pair of trou back to your hotel!

    B-Supportive!
    Use the map below (and posted on key BCycle station kiosks) to follow your athlete along the course and cheer on the racers. Just $3 at any kiosk gets you unlimited 30 min. trips so track your athlete throughout the course and see them progress. Just remember to dock your BCycle every 30 minutes to avoid usage fees.
