May is National Bike Month


Can you feel it? The energy in the air? The buzz in your community as daily riders and bike-curious residents gather to celebrate biking in countless creative ways?

1267.jpgYep, it’s May — and May is Bike Month.

Whether you bike to work or school; ride to save money or time; pump those pedals to preserve your health or the environment; or simply to explore your community, National Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride.

And today is a big day. It’s the official start of the National Bike Challenge; it’s the release of the 2014 Bicycle Friendly State Ranking, and it’s the day we invite YOU to show your love by changing your Facebook profile or timeline photo to May is Bike Month!

What else is on the national calendar? Here are important dates to remember:
