  • #WhyIBCycle: Garrett

    by Morgan Ramaker | May 09,2017
    Meet Garrett, a former professional cyclist, and current active BCyclist!
    Bcycle GP
    Tell us a little about yourself! 
    I moved to Madison about 5 years ago for my PhD in exercise science. Prior to that I cycled for the UW-Madison cycling team and then professionally on the domestic and international levels. Nowadays I don't race but do consider myself a professional BCyclist!

    Why do you choose to use BCycle instead of your own bike?

    Convenience is really nice, just being able to go to a station and check out a bike and know you can return it to a different station without being worried about maintenance. I also like supporting the community infrastructure for exercise, and it’s a sustainable transportation option.

    What is your favorite BCycle Memory?

    A few years ago, one nice day in the summer, I BCycled to all of the stations. (Editor’s note: we like to call this the Tour de BCycle!)

    Meet Becky, a UW-Madison senior and BCycle intern!

    Tell us a little about yourself! 
    I’m a senior at UW-Madison originally from the Chicagoland area, studying marketing and international business. I love photography and food, so if you have any recommendations for restaurants, I’m taking them!

    What do you like about working at Madison BCycle?

    I really like working in such a small team and making a big impact with my work. Aside from that, it’s a fun company with a start-up feel, and it’s great to see the positive reception by the the Madison community!

    What is your favorite activity to do in Madison?
    Besides relaxing on the Terrace, going to a Badger football or basketball game definitely ranks on my top things to do. The school spirit here is awesome.

    What is your favorite restaurant in Madison?

    Definitely the Old Fashioned, a classic in Madison and something I’m going to miss.

    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.
