Eight Biking Santas...
Wisconsin is truly a bicycle-friendly state – so much so that when Santa doesn’t want to use his sleigh, he has his bike to use as a backup.
Organized events, like the Santa Cycle Rampage in Milwaukee, have been sweeping across the state. The Milwaukee event was started many years ago by a handful of people, all dressed as Santa, who wanted to encourage winter bike riding. (And yes, it has worked.)
Bicycling is big business in Wisconsin boosting the economy by $1.5 billion annually, through manufacturing, retail, recreation and tourism. Bicycling provides more than 13,200 jobs to state residents, and it brings in $535 million in tourism from out-of-state visitors.
Happy, safe, and warm bike riding to all. And to all a good night.
