May is National Bike Month, sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists and celebrated in communities from coast to coast. Established in 1956, National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling—and encourage more folks to giving biking a try.
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.
Do you have an old bicycle crammed into the back of your garage or basement that is just gathering dust? Or maybe you’ve been meaning to buy a bike for years, but just didn’t know where to start. Well, stop making excuses and dive in. Whether it’s basic maintenance or the health effects of cycling, we are celebrating all things bike in our infographic!
