Bike riders will be psyched to hear that a new game called Bike! Bingo is launching in Milwaukee. A more exciting version of the game our grandparents play at the nursing home on Saturday nights, Bike! Bingo’s goal is to reward you for pedaling and exploring the streets of Milwaukee. The more you ride, the more you win. Visit area businesses (and some other spots) by bike and get your board stamped by employees. Get “bingo” and win prizes, fill up the whole care and redeem even more prizes!
Bike! Bingo is a “Celebration of Milwaukee by bike!” put on by Bryan Labissioniere of the Wisconsin Bicycle Federation and Ian Klepetar of the Bicycle Benefits program, which has recently come to the area.
Bike! Bingo kicks off this Saturday, April 18th from 2-5pm with bike shops set up at Purple Door Ice Creamt offering free mini-tune ups/adjustments to participants who bike over. The shops will be giving out tokens good for a free small cone inside. If you don’t pedal over, don’t expect anything! Then from 6-8pm, Bremen Cafe will be a hooking up those who ride over with free beer and Riverwest Pizza (while it lasts).
Bike! Bingo cards are available upon request at most of the Bike Benefits Milwaukee participating businesses and at area bike shops. You can request an area to have them distributed or email any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
