Bublr Winter Shut Down Complete :(

bublrbikes.com In Wisconsin, winter is never too far away and Bublr Bikes knew when we launched in August that we’d shut down for a few of the coldest and snowiest months of the year. As we’ve previously written, that time has finally come.

Sad but necessary...

Now that the white stuff is flying we've decided to shut down and remove our Cathedral Square station TODAY. This station has been one of our most popular. Thank you to everyone that used this station. A REMINDER: the balance of the Bublr network will be shut down on December 1st. Get your riding in now!

Our good friend Steve Weinstein just sent us this awesome picture.
The kind of parade we love seeing. Thanks for riding.
