Share your expertise, your excitement for winter riding and celebrate the season with others at the Madison Bike Winter Fashion Show on Saturday, November 19th, 11:30am to 2:30pm at the High Noon Saloon!

Three ways you can be involved and share your love of winter riding:

  • Volunteer to be a Madison Bikes Winter Fashion Show Model!
    • We’re looking for folks to model “shoulder season” gear that gets you through late fall and or early spring rides.
    • We’re looking for models for“deep winter” gear that gets you through the coldest and darkest days.
    • Our credo at Madison Bikes is “all ages, all abilities.” We welcome models of all body shapes, genders, ages, colors, levels of experience.
    • No technical gear necessary, in fact we’d love to see what DIY and/or inexpensive solutions you’ve found for keeping warm and dry!
    • All models must:
      • Be able to commit to be available on November 19 from 11:30am to 2:30pm.

    • All bike station volunteers must:
      • Complete a brief application (below) by November 5
  • Send your three favorite winter biking photos to! This could be a picture of yourself, your winter bike, your winter gear, or a great ride in winter.
