Biking is allowed a long as Social Distancing Requirements are followed:
Outdoor activity. To engage in outdoor activity, including
visiting public and state parks, provided individuals comply

activities include, by way of example and without limitation,
walking, biking, hiking, or running. Individuals may not engage
in team or contact sports such as by way of example and
without limitation, basketball, ultimate frisbee, soccer, or

Bike Share is not mentioned specifically but we believe it falls under the “construed broadly” definition:*(see below for statement on Bike Share from Bublr Bikes in Milwaukee
distribution centers; oil and biofuel refining; roads, highways, railroads,
and public transportation; ports; cybersecurity operations; flood
control; solid waste and recycling collection and removal; and internet,
video, and telecommunications systems (including the provision of
essential global, national, and local infrastructure for computing
services, business infrastructure, communications, and web-based
Essential Infrastructure shall be construed broadly to avoid any
impacts to essential infrastructure, broadly defined.
UPDATE 3/26/2020 Currently Bublr in Milwaukee and Madison BCycle are open, but with some station closures. Please use health precautions such as gloves and hand washing or sanitation before and after usage. This may change and we will try to update you as soon as we hear more.
Thank you to those who contacted elected officials. Bike Fed will continue to monitor changes that affect our industry and activities and update you when we hear anything new.
Here is the letter we sent to Governor Evers on Sunday, March 22nd to advocate for this allowance.
This Google sheet is constantly being updated to reflect information we know about hours, precautions, etc for each bike shop across the state. If you represent one of these shops feel free to comment in that box to let us know an update otherwise we are reaching out to them all over the next couple days. Please be patient as we update call or email the shop directly to confirm until we have this completed. Thanks to Madison Bikes for their assistance in the project.
If you find the work we provide helpful please consider joining or renewing today.
*Update on novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Bublr knows you’ve gotten plenty of emails about coronavirus in the past few days, but we want to make sure to keep our riders informed and most importantly healthy.
Most importantly, per the recommendations of the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) and WHO (https://www.who.int/health-topics/coronavirus) please stay home unless you really, really need to go someplace. Social distancing is important to flatten the curve of disease transmission and hopefully prevent our healthcare system from being overwhelmed.
However, if you must go someplace, a bicycle is a great way to get there for several reasons. First, bicycling can be a completely solitary activity so you can maintain appropriate social distancing. Second, research has shown that bicycling boosts the immune system. Finally, coronaviruses do not live long in sunlight. (https://www.npr.org/…/the-new-coronavirus-can-live-on-surfa…) The City of Philadelphia released this statement regarding their bikeshare system:
“Coronaviruses don’t last long in the open air and research shows that being outside lowers the risk of exposure through objects or materials such as clothes, utensils, furniture or other objects that may carry infections. Meanwhile, proximity to people who are sneezing and coughing poses the biggest risk of transmission.
Since the virus doesn’t have a long outdoor life span and people are advised not to touch their face without washing their hands, the risk of getting sick from bike handles is very low, city officials say.”
Again, if you can, please stay home. If you can’t, Bublr Bikes is open, and a good option to get where you need to go. To further minimize the already low risks of COVID-19 transmission associated with bikeshare please consider the following precautions.
Use the BCycle App (https://www.bcycle.com/app) to check out Bublr Bikes to avoid any unnecessary contact with surfaces. Wear gloves while riding – it’s still March in Wisconsin so probably a good idea anyway!
Wash your hands as soon as you get to your destination.
During these uncertain times, Bublr appreciates your support more than ever. As a nonprofit organization, Bublr relies on user revenue and sponsorships. We are expecting our ridership to drop significantly during the next several weeks and many of our sponsors are now in a holding pattern. If you are able, please consider making a donation to Bublr Bikes https://bublrbikes.org/donate.
