May is National Bike Month
We’re already celebrating! Bike Month is promoted by the League of American Bicyclists and celebrated in communities and colleges from coast to coast. It’s a great opportunity to experience the many joys and benefits of bicycling. Whether you are new to biking, a Lycra-clad road warrior, or somewhere in between, we encourage you to explore and #BikeTheTriangle.
Throughout the spring look for online programs and in-person events to inspire you to bike for fun, fitness, with family, or for essential trips to work or run errands. We’ll start now, and keep riding throughout the year.
