Bike bingo helps local businesses

BROWN COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) - Bike bingo kicks off in the Green Bay area on Wednesday.

It's a unique way that promotes being active and helping local businesses at the same time. This is the third year of the event.

Here is how you can participate: Pick up a bingo card and ride your bike to any of the participating businesses, like Great Harvest Bread Company in De Pere and get your card stamped.

Once you get your card filled, you can enter to win a variety of different prizes donated from the 15 participating businesses.

LIVE54218, an organization in Green Bay that promotes healthy lifestyles organized the event and is partnering with the Green bay Bicycle Collective and Bayshore Bike Club.

"I think sometimes people will go past a business and have no idea what they do or whether it's something they're in stopping by. I think bike bingo kind of offers that opportunity" said Mario Gonzalez with LIVE54218.
