Mark your calendars! Friday, May 15, 2015 is The League of American Cyclists‘ National Bike To Work Day. IF there is ever a day to ride to work, make it this day. Think about the positive statement we’ll be making as cyclists, safely using an alternate form of transportation.

Based on our great success in Richardson 3 years ago, which grew to 5 stations around Dallas 2 years ago, and up to 9 stations last year, BikeDFWDART and local bike groups, like Bike Friendly Richardson, have partnered up to host another 9 Bike Commuter Energizer Stations around the Dallas/Fort Worth area – including the original stop at Arapaho Station.

Richardson Energizer Station info:

LOCATION: RICHARDSON – DART Arapaho Station
DATE: Friday, May 15, 2015

National Bike Month Starts Today

Posted in Advocacy, Bicycle Events by dickdavid on May 1, 2012

May is National Bike Month! The League of American Bicyclists invites you to “celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride. Whether you bike to work or school; to save money or time; to preserve your health or the environment; to explore your community or get to your destination, get involved in Bike Month in your city or state — and help get more people in your community out riding too!”

If you haven’t already done it, dust off your bike, air up the tires and ride!

Bike Friendly Richardson is also celebrating National Bike Month. We’ll try to get in a group ride to the Cottonwood Art Festival this weekend. We’ll also be participating in the Richardson Wild Ride Against Cancer. Also, stay tuned for an upcoming event to be held on National Bike to Work Day on May 18.

Happy Bike To Work Day

The League of American Bicyclists recognizes May as National Bike Month, this week as Bike To Work Week and today as Bike To Work Day. Not only did I celebrate by riding my bike to work today, but I also went a new route. It was about a mile longer, but less car traffic.

What did you do to recognize Bike To Work Day? We’d love to hear your story.
