Beyond the Bars: Part Deux

420129_569142989775145_1580406798_nIt is downright appalling that summer is officially over. With Labor Day, the first day of school, and the Iron Man all behind us, I have to admit I am mildly offended. I don’t recall telling summer it could end. But according to the forecast, there may still be some hope for summer-like weather. After all, the weather gods owe Madison a solid after that little thing called “June.” High of 62 and 80% chance of rain every day? Yeah…about that…

Ya know what isn’t offensive about summer ending? The return of a contest for a free annual membership to Madison B-cycle. You may have caught glimpses or our “Beyond The Bars” moments on our Facebook and Twitter this summer. You may have even been inspired to snap your own photos. Well, those creative strokes of genius could be your chance at a free membership.

BTB 2Three options:
1) Tweet at us (@Madison_Bcycle) and use the hashtag #beyondthebars
2) Instagram your photo, mention us (@Madison_Bcycle), and use the hashtag #beyondthebars
or
3) email your photos to info@madisonbcycle.com

We will take photo submissions until November 1st and then the best photo will be chosen for an annual membership. So keep riding, start snappin’, and show us where your B-cycle is taking you this fall.  #beyondthebars

Here are some of the best #beyondthebars moments from this summer:BNUTY3VCAAIhY8f BL3FXtfCYAEy5YK 5898_576828209006623_1441374640_n BMen4TcCUAAZBdE.jpg-large BMRG71SCYAAnrOW.jpg-large BTB 1 Screen Shot 2013-09-06 at 8.59.46 AM BPO6zBQCYAARqbL.jpg-large Screen Shot 2013-09-06 at 8.59.10 AM Screen Shot 2013-09-06 at 8.58.38 AM torben 1 20130613_1832271004671_601003709922406_2005277491_n 1157723_603901312965979_1120006157_n

Ride The Drive

btb5This past Sunday, Madison B-cycle took to the streets of downtown for the annual Ride The Drive. John Nolen Drive (amongst other streets) were closed to cars so bikes, roller blades, and strollers could rule the streets. B-Team was ready to rumble real early to set up the tent, arrange the coveted B-cycle sunglasses, and assemble the temporary station for bike check-in and check-out. Windy conditions threatened the existence of the B-cycle tent, but after some creative bungee-cording, the station was ready to go!

20130602_095102Last year we saw a lot of success with our dueling B-cycle mounts, but we upped our game this year with B-cycle basket toss and the ever popular Smoothie Bike. Thanks to our friends at Saris, we were able to have a full on smoothie bar at Ride The Drive – a bike-powered smoothie bar. The “Blender Bike” was a huge hit with young and old riders alike, and I think it is safe to say you will be seeing it at future events.

crushin’ ice and takin’ names.

Ride it like you stole it.

The temperature rose progressively throughout the day and by 1 PM the sun was shining and everyone was smiling. Well..most of us anyway.

Huge thanks to all those who came out to Ride The Drive and participated in all our fun and games. We are so grateful to be a part of this bike-loving community and can’t wait for next year!

B-Basket Toss!

The Trike! With coffee! For the win!

The Trike came to the rescue half way through the ride – coffee and bagels in tow!

We like your game face.

Now that’s a game face.

Beyond The Bars

Here at B-cycle, we are firm believers that sharing is caring. So we want to share all the joys of an annual membership with a special someone in exchange for the sharing of awesome photos. To kick off our summer season, we will be running a social media campaign titled…(drum roll please…)

“BEYOND THE BARS”.

BTB 1

We know you’ve been taking your B-cycle cool places. And we know you are going to keep taking it cool places. And well, we wanna know about it! It’s time to take your joy rides from the streets to the tweets. Whenever you’re cruising around, send us your Beyond the Bars photos on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or email your photos to info@madisonbcycle.com.

BTB 2Notice the composition here in our sampler photos? Show us what is beyond your B-cycles sweet red handle bars. And remember to use the hashtag #beyondthebars on both Twitter and Instagram! Not only will we be sharing your photos so you can obtain ultimate B-cycle celeb status, but we will be holding a contest for the best of the best at the end of the summer. We will make  a Facebook album and then you can vote for your favorite! Whoever takes the photo with the most “Likes” will win a free annual membership. Sounds fun, no? 

Here at B-cycle, we are about way more than bike sharing. We are about life sharing. So share with us your best #beyondthebars moments this summer.
