This year’s Bike Week puts a spotlight on the economic impact cycling has brought to the Badger State. According to a 2019 study by the Outdoor Industry Association, cycling supports 13,000 jobs in the state and generates an economic impact of $1.4 billion. 

Municipalities all over Wisconsin have invested in bike infrastructure. Earlier this year, Madison was awarded $187,500 to help complete a bike trail at County Grove Park.
