Bike Week will be happening from June 1-8 in every corner of the city. Madison Bike Week will feature big, well-established events such as Ride the Drive and Bacon on the Bike Path, as well as Bike Stations with free treats or bike checks, organized bike rides, or special Madison Bike Week offers from local businesses.

The Madison Bikes vision is a city where anyone can ride to any place comfortably and conveniently, and Madison Bike Week is an important part of making that vision a reality. Bike Week celebrates riding to work, to school, to a park, to the library -- or biking to feel the warm wind blowing through your hair.

There are lots of ways for you to get involved with the biggest celebration of bikes in our city.

You can:

  • Host an event: Set up a tent outside and offer treats to people on bikes, or offer bike checks, or fun activities! Invite your community, your staff, your customers to come along and celebrate together. Consider partnering with other business or community organizations.
  • Offer deals and benefits to people riding during this week.

  • Promote Bike Week: There will be dozens of events happening every day. Put up posters or flyers, or promote Madison Bike Week on social media.

If you are interested in hosting an event or otherwise participate with your organization or business, sign up here.
