Winter Bike Fashion Show: Be a model!

View post on

We’re looking for Madison Bikers of all ages who brave the elements and bike into early winter, bike in early spring or even bike year round to share their tips and expertise in dressing for the weather! Madison Bikes is excited to host the 2018 edition of the Winter Bike Fashion Show on November 17 from 1-4 pm at the High Noon Saloon. There will be fun, camaraderie, and of course a fashion show highlighting real Madisonians and their winter weather gear. If you’ve discovered a great solution to keeping your hands warm and dry, or have found a way to keep your toes from freezing, we’d love to have you join the fashion show as a model. Do you have a great tip for avoiding fogged up glasses or for keeping your bike lock dry and functional? We’d love to have you!

Application deadline: Friday November 2, noon. We encourage you to apply early!

If you haven’t been to the show before, these pictures showcase some of our previous awesome models!
