In the 608: Madison BCycle Art Bikes to be unveiled Thursday

MADISON, Wis. – For over a decade, Madison BCycle trips have positively impacted the community by reducing the amount of carbon emissions in our air and giving riders a healthy transportation and recreation option.

This year, Madison BCycle trips will make an even bigger difference in our city. They’re set to unveil the brand new Art Bikes on Thursday, June 10th at the Garver Feed Mill. The public is invited to see the showcase from 4:30 to 6:30 pm.

BCycle General Manager Helen Bradley says the Art Bike program is a way to bring together local organizations and local artists and bring attention to issues or causes that exist in our community, like what we saw throughout downtown last year with the murals.

Special electric bikes will display powerful pieces of art throughout 2021 for riders to use on their daily commutes and recreational trips. You’ll begin seeing them out on the streets beginning Friday morning.

We met up with Kat Culbertson, one of the artists behind the project. Kat was inspired to be part of this initiative to spread positivity in the community.
