Tell us a little about yourself!
My name is Fola A. I grew up in New York City and I moved to Madison for graduate school in 2014. I started riding B-cycle out of necessity because it was my only means of reliable transportation. When I’m not doing research for grad school, I am riding around town in my bike. Having B-cycle allows me to explore certain parts of town at an extremely low-cost.
What is your favorite activity to do in Madison?
I love playing basketball at James Madison Park in the summertime. It is a beautiful setting since it is right by the lake (editor's note: we love biking here!). Very picturesque.
When and why do you choose to use BCycle instead of your own bike?
I choose B-Cycle instead of my own bike because B-Cycle offers high-quality reliable bikes at a very low cost. Most of the bikes that I’ve purchased at the same value of a B-cycle membership have deteriorated within months : (.
How often do you use BCycle?
Everyday. It gets me everywhere. I even go grocery shopping with B-cycle. B-cycle is life.
Why do you recommend bikesharing?
Not only are you exercising but you are joining a community of people that enjoy biking. It is one of the best ways of getting around town.
What is your favorite BCycle Memory?
Biking all the way from the west side of Madison to the botanical gardens. It was a long journey but it was very fulfilling. B-cycle has given me buns of steel.
