  • BIKE WEEK 2016

    by Gabi Caron-Schuler | Jun 14,2016
    Bike Week 2016 is done and boy, was it a good one this year! 

    All of us here at Madison BCycle had a great time getting to know you when you came to say hello, checked in with us at the Clips Film Festival, grabbed some coffee at our commuter station near HotelRED, or scored a free membership for the entire summer! 

    We tried to document all the fun and excitement on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and most importantly, our new Snapchat, so to always keep you updated, involved, and for those of you who didn't come, inflict some major FOMO! 

    Heres a countdown of our favorite moments and pictures this week:

    5. MUFFIN MOUNTAIN - Our friends at HotelRED generously provided us with tons of yummy snacks throughout the week at our commuter station near Camp Randall. Although it was hard to pick a favorite treat, we had to give it to the delicious muffins; they were so yummy and so beautiful!

    4. COMMUTER PUPS - We are all huge dog lovers at BCycle so it was super exciting to see all of the awesome, and adorable, pups out on the bike path! Our puppy bffs this week were Gertrude, Milly, and Bella (not pictured)!

    3. #BCYCLEKIDDOS - If theres one thing we love more than people on bikes, its kids on bikes! Tons o' kids celebrated this week and scored some major muffins and stickers, which they seemed to be pretty impressed and excited by!

    2. BOTTOMLESS COFFEE - We are proud to say that we NEVER ran out of coffee!!! BCycle and HotelRED made sure to always have your backs by keeping that caffeine flowin!!!! If we seem a little excited about this, remember, the coffee was ENDLESS, so we may have had a little too much!

  • New Interns Summer 2016!

    by Martha Laugen | May 27,2016

    We are excited to introduce our two newest Marketing Interns for Summer 2016: Julisa Ricart and me, Gabi Caron-Schuler (Hi, I'm writing this!) Both Julisa and I are super excited to be a part of the team here at BCycle! We will be working all sorts of fun events and keeping you updated on all of our social media outlets. Don't be afraid to reach out to us on Facebook, Insta, Twitter, and now, Snapchat; And also make sure to stop by whenever you see us and say hello, or wazzup, or yo--whatever works! 

    I am going to be a Junior at UW-Madison pursuing a degree in Retail & Consumer Behavior with a certificate in Sustainability and Fabulousness. I love running, the cookie monster, eating my body weight in chocolate, and hanging with my puppy Frankie! My favorite BCycle adventure is riding along the Monona Bike path to Willy St. Co-Op where I fill the front basket up with tons of cookies, hummus, and frozen treats!

    Julisa just graduated from UW-Madison (Woo Hoo! Congrats!) with a degree in Conservation Biology and Environmental Studies! She loves community bike share programs because they are a great way to save the environment and ride in style! She grew up in Saint Paul, Minnesota with two amazing dogs, Willow and Daisy; they have a Facebook page, so make sure to check them out! She enjoys bird watching (just like her dogs) and watching TED talks. 

    Now that you know a little bit about us, we want to know more about you! Tweet us @Madison_Bcycle, write on our Facebook wall, tag us in a pic @madison_bcycle, and make sure to follow us on our new Snapchat @madisonbcycle; we post tons of fun pics and vids, and would love to snap you back to answer questions or just have a chat!
