That's why we're encouraging everyone to buy a Bicycle Benefits sticker and use this around town to get discounts at your favorite bars, restaurants, cafes, and more. Check out all of the participating businesses in FitchburgMadisonSun Prairie, and Verona, then hop and your bike and pay them a visit! 

Each week, all riders who share a story on Love to Ride Madison using #BikeBenefitsBlitz will be entered into a drawing with others from around the state, to win a gift card from a local business. In addition, gift cards and Equal Exchange chocolate bars will be distributed based on the number of Bicycle Benefits businesses that you patronize during the month.

How to win: Share a story on Love to Ride Madison using #BikeBenefitsBlitz and a picture of yourself at the business. Names will be entered into a statewide drawing and winners will be contacted by Bike Benefits. 

Winners announced: At the end of the challenge
