May is Bike Month
May. A month when we encourage everyone to rediscover their bikes and the sheer, simple joys that come from riding. Bike Month motivates new riders and inspires experienced cyclists. Every day, at least 11 million Americans will bicycle. Some will ride on major roads, many on neighborhood streets, others on dirt. A few will pedal 100 miles, while others will roll a few blocks. Events, classes, and rides on the Bike Month website.
