ON THE MADSEN MAP: 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. On the Map, you can view and connect with MADSEN neighbors near you and help bring more bucket bike families to your area! Check out the live MADSEN Map at the bottom of this page.




May is Bike Month! And now that the weather is warming up, it's the BEST time to amp up the riding. This means picnics and takeout time. Some of the best family memories are made by grabbing your favorite food by bike and eating at the park or a concert, or just bringing it back home to enjoy. 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!

 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.


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!!
