It’s Time to Get Your Bublr Bash Tickets!

This year Bublr Bikes, Greater Milwaukee’s Nonprofit Bikeshare, turns 7 years old! It’s hard to believe that August of 2014 was 7 years ago, but here we are. To celebrate we are hosting our Annual Bublr Bash on Thursday August 12th from 6:30 to 9:30 at the Bay View Wheel & Sprocket located at 187 E. Becher Street. There will be free beer provided by Lakefront Brewery, hors d’oeuvre, and other food and drink available for purchase from Joyride Café. Vincent Van Great is hosting the event with DJ Shawna, Orlando Peñe, and Valerie Lighthart performing. We also have some great silent auction items lined up from Milwaukee staples including Purple Door Ice Cream, Tippecanoe Herbs and Apothecary, 88nine, Hue Vietnamese Restaurant, Outpost, Nail Bar, Historic Milwaukee, and Discovery World. On top of all that, we will be announcing the 2021 Connecting Milwaukee award recipients!

Benefits of Bikeshare

In what is believed to be the first study of its kind, the public health benefits of U.S bikeshare systems are estimated to be $36 million per year. This is despite the fact that there are only about 100,000 shared bikes in the entire country.
