May is National Bike Month
May 1, 2015
Sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists, National Bike Month is a 31-day celebration of travel by two wheels. Communities big and small are hosting bike-centered events, teaching bike education classes, voting on resolutions to deem May Bike Month in their towns and much more. National Bike to Work Day, May 15 this year, is also a time to take stock of how much bicycling has grown locally and nationally.
"National Bike Month is the time of year that we celebrate the bicycle as the answer to many complex questions," said Andy Clarke, League President. "Whether it be for fitness, the environment, finances, or community resolve, we've seen the bicycle unite people and help them accomplish their many varied goals."
