Wisconsin is getting ready for its annual bike week, set to take place from Jun 1, 2024 to Jun 9, 2024. This year’s Bike Week puts a spotlight on the economic impact cycling has brought to the Badger State. According to a 2019 study by the Outdoor Industry Association, cycling supports 13,000 jobs in the state and generates an economic impact of $1.4 billion. 

Municipalities all over Wisconsin have invested in bike infrastructure. Portage County was recently awarded $200,000 to create a comprehensive safety action plan and revise the County’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.
