Explore the best Milwaukee has to offer with VISIT Milwaukee and OnMilwaukee this summer by "Urban Exploring." We'll be sharing parks to hike, walls to climb, rivers to paddle, trails to bike and so much more. Be a tourist in your own town and experience it with us! 

From the very beginning, OnMilwaukee’s been an advocate for bike sharing in Greater Milwaukee. We want to see lots of possibilities for traveling through the city, and Bublr is among the most up close and personal. We rode early, have worked to promote Bublr bikes, and even created two Bublr LocaMojis.

And, of course, we ride them.

We're really happy to see the revamped designs rolling around, which offer a lighter bike with better stability and a neat spring-loaded basket to keep your bags, groceries and other affects nice and secure. And today, we’re super excited to jump on board in a new capacity. Yes, Milwaukee, you can now ride your very own OnMilwaukee Bublr bike!

Yep, buy an annual pass, do a short trip, clear a day for exploration and avoid parking hassles wherever you go (especially Summerfest). Whatever your bike share wants and needs are, there are now plenty of stations to meet them – and new OnMilwaukee logo-clad baskets to make you look even better riding around.

Do you want to associate your brand, your company or even your name with this fun, healthy and sustainable way to move around greater Milwaukee? Do you want to support the continued growth of Milwaukee’s non-profit bike share system? Check out the "Sponsor a Bublr" program.

Bublr Bikes launched in 2014 with just 10 stations and added 18 more in 2015. Bublr wants to install 100-plus bike share stations in at least four area municipalities by 2018.

Even if you’re not a bike rider, Bublr is awesome. It reduces car congestion, reduces pollution, increases your heart rate, gets you into the fresh air and sun and covers short distances much faster than walking (or driving and parking). And be sure to watch the "Leaderboard" of riders here. Pricing information is here.

See you on a Bublr soon. Even better, see you on an OnMilwaukee Bublr soon! And when you ride an OnMilwauke Bublr snap a photo, share it and tag us.
