May Is Still Bike Month

unnamed (9)


May is Still National Bike Month, promoted by the League of American Bicyclists and celebrated in communities from coast to coast. Established in 1956, National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling — and encourage more folks to giving biking a try.

This National Bike Month will necessarily be different. With less focus on biking to work, we’re going to focus on riding “there” whether “there” is to the grocer for essentials or to Ashley Pond and back with the kids. Part of making progress on the League’s vision is encouraging everyone to think beyond biking to work and move towards a holistic approach to integrating bicycling into as many aspects of our daily lives as possible. 

May is National Bike Month, a celebration of biking as transportation, as recreation, as essential to our well-being and everyday lives. May is when the National Bike Challenge kicks off and runs through September. In 2020, Bike to Work Week will be September 21–27, with Bike to Work Day on Tuesday, September 22, coinciding with Car Free Day.
