National Bike Month is fast approaching. The League of American Bicyclists is promoting May 16-20 as National Bike-to-Work Week, and Friday, May 20 as National Bike-to-Work Day. Visit the LAB website to get information about Bike Month events in your area.
Here in Northern California, bike riders from all over the region will once again be able to track their miles during the month of May at the May is Bike Month website. The goal is to reach 1,000,000 total bike miles for the month (last year, the region’s bicyclists logged a total of 1,324,145 miles!):
May is Bike Month challenges people to choose bicycling for all types of trips including those related to work, school, errands, and recreation throughout the six-county Sacramento region (El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba counties). As a participant you can help the Sacramento region log one million miles, making this a Million Mile May. Take this opportunity to save money, reduce air pollution, exercise, and get involved with your community by bicycling instead of driving.
Bike Month is a great opportunity to introduce your non-biking friends and colleagues to bike commuting and using bicycles for transportation!
