Milwaukee (June 9, 2016) – Today Bublr Bikes, Milwaukee’s not-for-profit bike share system, announced the “Sponsor a Bublr Bike” campaign. Corporation or individuals can sponsor individual Bublr Bikes and help support the growth and expansion of bike share in Milwaukee County.

“Bublr Bikes is a fun, healthy and environmentally sustainable way to get around town,” said Kevin Hardman, Bublr Bikes Executive Director. “With the Sponsor a Bublr Bike campaign, corporations and individuals can proudly display their support of Bublr Bikes, associate their name and brand with an important community asset and help fuel our continued growth.”

Supporters are recognized prominently on the baskets of the bicycles with either their logo or their name. Corporations can sponsor bicycles for only $250/bicycle/year with a minimum of 10 bicycles. Individuals can sponsor a Bublr for only $200/bicycle/year.

Bublr Bikes is excited to announce Wheel & Sprocket as the first supporter of the Sponsor a Bublr Bike campaign. “Bublr Bikes is transforming the City of Milwaukee,” said Chris Kegel President of Wheel & Sprocket. “Our team is honored to support Bublr Bikes as it motivates thousands of people to experience the joy of being on a bicycle.”

Wheel & Sprocket has supported Bublr Bikes since before the system launched in August 2014. The first 50 Bublr Bikes were built by the Wheel & Sprocket team. Since then, Wheel & Sprocket has continued its support through logistical help, connecting Bublr to staffing resources and providing leadership mentoring.

“Wheel & Sprocket has always been there to support Bublr Bikes,” adds Kevin Hardman. “There is no better first supporter of this program than their great team.”

A corporation or individual interested in supporting a Bublr Bike can contact Kevin Hardman at (414) 412-1397 or Kevin@BublrBikes.com. More information on the program can be found at: http://bublrbikes.com/sponsor/sponsor-a-bublr-bike/
