May is Bike Month

May is National Bike Month and is celebrated in communities across the country. Established in 1956 and sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists, National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling and a time to encourage more people to bike. Bicycling is an excellent form of recreation and a great choice for commuting. It is great for your health and it reduces oil dependence and air pollution. The best way to celebrate is to get on a bike: ride to work, ride to school, ride to the grocery store, or just ride for fun!

National Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride. Check out this year's wonderful Bike Month events, meet some cool people, and start peddling!
