May is National Bike Month

It is time to celebrate! National Bike Month was established in 1956. Now is the perfect time to promote the countless benefits of biking and help persuade folks to give biking a try.

The League of American Bicyclists is a national sponsor of Bike Month, and has been involved in bicycle advocacy since its inception (then as the League of American Wheelmen) in 1880.

Bike Month is observed every May in communities across the nation with organized rides and events, including National Bike to Work Week from May 12-16 and National Bike to Work Day on May 16.

This is a wonderful opportunity to examine the reasons you ride, encourage a family member or friend to begin riding, or just celebrate bicycling and bike culture.

Whether you ride your bike for fitness, fun, transportation, your health or the planet’s health, make sure you get out on your bike this Bike Month.
