Mayor Barrett’s Bike Ride

Mayor Tom Barrett helped Milwaukee celebrate WI Bike Week by leading a group of bike commuters to City Hall – and he even rode a Bublr Bike! Barrett had a couple Common Council members, at least one City of Milwaukee building inspector, and more than 40+ residents along for the ride.

The ride ended with Colectivo Coffee and a press conference at City Hall to share a couple important two-wheeled updates:

  • In 2015, the City of Milwaukee plans to add more bike lanes and extend off-road trails, including the Beerline Trail.
  • Bublr Bikes will add 15-20 more Bublr Stations.

It’s important for the Milwaukee area to have transportation choices – not so there’s one thing for everyone, but so there are many things for us to share together!

TMJ4 and FOX 6 helped us cover the story. Take a look at the videos of Mayor Barrett’s Bike Ride:
