Bike to Work Pit Stop

In recognition of National Bike to Work Week (May 15–19) and National Bike to Work Day (May 19), the Monona East Side Business Alliance hosted a pit stop for cyclists on May 19 from 7–9 a.m. at the western end of Waunona Way where it intersects with the Capital City State Trail near John Nolen Drive. Cyclists were offered free coffee, water, and donuts. “The economic impact of bicycling in the State of Wisconsin is undeniable,” says Kristie Schilling, executive director of the Monona East Side Business Alliance. “$1.5 billion is pumped into the state’s economy annually as reported by the Wisconsin Bike Fed. Monona is very bicycle friendly and the Monona Lake Loop is touted as one of the most heavily ridden routes in the Madison area. We want to welcome cyclists passing through, whether they be commuters or recreational cyclists, with refreshments and smiling faces.” (For information on getting your event featured in the IB Gallery, email jason@ibmadison.com.)
