Where to park your car or pick up a bike in Madison during the CrossFit Games

Where to pick up an electric bike or park

Madison’s downtown is not that difficult to navigate. The Wisconsin State Capitol building marks the epicenter of our downtown, which is situated on an isthmus. Pinckney, Mifflin, Main and Carroll streets connect to create Captiol Square, or “the Square.” Capitol Square and its outlerloop are one-way and run in the same counter-clockwise direction. Note: State Street on the Square’s west hand side is closed to vehicle traffic. State Street is a good walking route to get from the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus to downtown. The Alliant Energy Center is on the southwest side of Lake Monona and is 11 minutes by car if you take John Nolen Drive.

Electric Bikes
While there are ample parking options downtown, Madison is home to more than 20 electric bikes stations. Madison BCycle just replaced all of the non-electric bikes with electric ones earlier this summer. All BCycle bike stations are marked in the map above with a blue B. A half hour on an e-bike costs $5.
