National Bike Month: May 2019

May is National Bike Month. If ever there was a good time to get into bicycling – or get others into it – now is that time. It’s spring, and it’s National Bike Month.

In 2017, the Census Bureau estimated that about 837,000 workers in the US bicycled to work, down from about 865,000 in 2012 and up from 665,000 in 2007.

According to the League of American Bicyclists “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.”

Here’s what’s happening in May:

  • Bike to School Day: May 8, 2019
  • Bike to Work Week: May 13-19, 2019
  • Bike to Work Day: May 17, 2018

Pick one of these, and start your own set of revolutions.
