Bike to a Bucks Game
Too Much Metal and Fuel Cafe will lead a ride on November 4th.
The Milwaukee Bucks play their games during the coldest months of the year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bike to a game.
The parking garage built in conjunction with the new Fiserv Forum features a large amount of covered bicycle parking. The rebuilt W. Juneau Ave. outside of the arena even includes bicycle lanes. But still, it’s hard to imagine cycling to cheer the deer without an even bigger boost.
Fuel Cafe and Too Much Metal are aiming to change that. The cafe and clothing company are teaming up to organize a ride from Fuel’s S. 5th Street location to the Bucks game against the Sacremento Kings on November 4th. The Sunday game tips off at 2:30 p.m., meaning the ride to and from occurs in the daylight. The ride to the game leaves Fuel, 630 S. 5th St., at 1 p.m.
The Phoenix Suns, who play in a substantially warmer client, were the first team to embrace the concept of bicycling to basketball games. The team began offering valet bicycle parking in 2009.
Gillich has become increasingly invested in cycling this year through the purchase of a tricycle-mounted clothing stand. The shop-on-wheels can be spotted at a number of street festivals around town.
Those who already have purchased tickets to the game are welcome to join the ride.
