ON THE MADSEN MAP: Easiest badge to earn - a good one to start with! If you own a bucket bike, new or used, sign up to be on the MADSEN Map here! Once signed up, you will receive the official "On the Map" badge! It is SO fun to see where all of you cool 😎 MADSEN owners are located. On the Map, you can see and connect with MADSEN neighbors near you, and also help bring more bucket bike families to your area! Check out the live MADSEN Map at the bottom of this page.


October 2023 - COSTUME BADGE 🎃👻: At MADSEN, Halloween bike decorating is a cherished tradition! This month, earn a COSTUME Badge by sharing images and videos of your bike decked out in its Halloween best! We welcome photos, videos, and even collaboration requests for reels—whatever you've got! DM, tag, text, or email your entries. We're so excited for this year's spooktacular costumes! Top 3 costumes will be chosen, but everyone earns a badge. Inspiration can be found on Instagram highlights "HALLOWEEN" and "HALLOWEEN 2"


 September 2023 - FULL BUCKET // "LOADED" BADGE: How full can you load your bucket? We've seen some REALLY full buckets over the years! Utilize the load capacity to its fullest potential😳! Load it with kids, adults and/or any crazy unique cargo. Wow us! Capture a photo or video and earn yourself a badge!! See lots of AMAZING cargo load examples on the Instagram highlight "🤯 CARGO LOADS" and "FULL BUCKET". Can't wait for this.

 MADSEN 1000 Mile Club: We know MANY of you have completed this challenge already! Please let us know if you already have hit 1000 miles on your bucket bike. If you can send us a pic to prove it, even better. (For non-electric bikes, we trust your estimate.) We have a #madsen1000mileclub badge on its way  🥳. Jared's goal has always been to design bikes that will last, and you are all proving that he did. THANK YOU! Keep riding!!

May 2023 - COMMUTER BADGE: Earn a COMMUTER badge by riding your bike to school and/or work 7 times to earn this badge. Since many of us work from home and don't have to commute kids to school - you can also choose any regular errand and consider it a "commute". Do it 7 times and then let us know!
