The easiest badge to earn - and a great one to start with! If you own a bucket bike, whether it's new or used, sign up to be on the MADSEN Map here! Once you've signed up, you will receive the official "On the Map" badge! It's SO much fun to see where all of you cool 😎 MADSEN owners are located. 


Takeout Badge

Enjoy a picnic or takeout by bike to earn this badge - and send us a pic or video as proof. We will send you the Takeout Badge to add to your collection!

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!!


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.) 


Parade Badge

Decorate your bike for any party or parade. This can be for the Fourth of July or another parade during the year!

July 4th Parade Bike-Decorating Contest: If you've been around MADSEN for a while, you know that our community has so much fun decorating. Find inspiration here.


Test Ride Badge

Allow 3 different neighbors, family members or friends to test ride your bucket bike to earn this badge! 


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!

30 DAY

Some of you joined Lisa in March 2023 for a RIDE EVERY DAY Challenge - no matter the weather - and earned your first badge. If not, choose a month or a 30-day stretch and bike every day - even just a little - to earn this badge. Then let us know!


Pet Badge

Transport a pet by bike to earn this badge! Send a photo or video (or collaboration request on Instagram) and we will send you the Pet Badge.
