Happy National Bike Month!

Did you know that the League of American Bicyclists established May as National Bike Month in 1956? It’s true and there are several ways to celebrate. Bicycling is a fun activity that can be done solo, with a friend, or the whole family. It’s a good workout and great for the environment too. You can kill two birds with one stone by engaging in Bike to Work Week on May 16th through the 22nd or Bike to Work Day on the 20th. And students can join in the Walk, Bike & Roll to School initiative all month long.

You could also participate in the events hosted by Love to Ride or the Bike to Wherever Days to win prizes. And don’t forget to join us here by Bike to Your Library on Sunday, May 22! Public transit and Caltrain can help make your journey possible, as both offer bike storage or allow you to bring your bike aboard. So whether you are biking to a destination or enjoying the great outdoors, grab your helmet and take a ride! For cyclists at any skill level, check out these resources to enhance your riding experience. Remember to have some fun, get some exercise and reduce your carbon footprint this spring and summer.
