What is BayCare Clinic Bikes?
BayCare Clinic Bikes promotes bicycling as a safe, healthy, family-friendly activity throughout northeastern Wisconsin.
Our mission is to increase the number of bicyclists and to advocate for bicycle safety.
Why we love bicycling
BayCare Clinic Bikes is a natural extension of our people’s passion for riding. Some commute to work at BayCare Clinic by bike. Many others – including our providers – enjoy riding for fun and fitness.
“It is a great, low impact way to get exercise all year round. You can get strength as well as cardio workouts as well as use your bike as a means of transportation.”
“Whether its riding a single track, taking a long road tour or just cruising the neighborhood with my kids, I enjoy biking because it is a great way to get exercise and experience the outdoors.”
“I enjoy bicycling because of the freedom it brings to me. It’s a time where I can clear my head and enjoy the time on the bicycle which for me brings me back to a younger age when I first started riding bikes.”
“It is my favorite way to get outside, feel alive, and explore the countryside. Cycling also is a great way to get cardiovascular exercise with less of a toll on the knees and hips than many other activities.”
“I love biking because I really enjoy the feeling of freedom in the outdoors during a ride and also the sense of accomplishment once I am finished. I love knowing that I can travel many miles under my own power. Taking in beautiful scenery along the way is another added benefit!”
“Riding a bicycle is a great way to spend time outdoors while improving your physical and mental health. When riding a bicycle, it is extremely important to wear a bike helmet as it can help prevent serious head injuries. As an avid bicyclist, I never leave home without mine!”
“Getting on a bike gets you away from technology and clears your mind. I love biking with my kids!”
“My wife and I ride a tandem together, so it is a great way for us to exercise together without one feeling that they are pushing or holding the other back. It also can make for some great weekend trips together and an excuse to visit a bed and breakfast.”
“I think it’s easier on my knees and hips than running. It also gives me an excuse to eat carbs. It is also a way to socialize with others while going on group rides or even competing.”
“It’s a great family activity. I’ve learned to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors – especially in our great state of Wisconsin – while getting in a fun workout and spending time with family and friends.”
