    Tell us a little about yourself!#WhyIBCycle - Erik
    I am a senior at UW- Madison. I will graduate in May 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in BSE Machinery Systems Engineering, a certificate in Chinese communication, and a certificate in International Engineering with an area focus on China. Originally, I am from Glenview, IL. I like being outdoors, playing volleyball, biking, retro videogames, and cooking.

    What do you like about working at Madison BCycle?
    I like being closer to a community of avid bikers and getting to work outdoors! The friendly and fun work environment and coworkers are a plus too!

    What is your favorite activity to do in Madison?
    There are so many! The first that come to mind are pick-up volleyball at James Madison Park and playing Euchre at the Terrace.

    What is your favorite restaurant in Madison?
    The Banzo food cart has always got me coming back for more.

    Tell us a little about yourself!Stef and BCycle 2 (002)
    My parents instilled the love of biking in me as a child. My sister Susi, my best friend Denise and I spent our entire summers in the suburbs of Chicago on our bikes. When I moved to Madison almost 23 years ago, I was so impressed by the bike trails!

    When do you use BCycle?
    I first used a BCycle while in Denver for a conference. I used it to explore the shops and restaurants of the city that I wouldn’t have been able to travel to by foot. So I was thrilled when BCycle came to Madison! My primary use of BCycle here is commuting from work to home. I am not a morning person so biking on my own bike to work is not going to happen. My husband drives me to work in the morning and I bike home. It is a fantastic way to unwind and get exercise in at the same time!

    Why do you recommend bike sharing?
    I love bike sharing! It’s a great way to experience Madison and exercise at the same time without needing a bike of your own. My husband and I spent most of our honeymoon exploring Chicago using their bike sharing system. It was a great way to see the city on the cheap. Before our trip, my husband hadn’t ridden a bike since he was a child.
