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.

May – National Bike Month

Posted in Advocacy, Bicycle Events by dickdavid on May 7, 2010

The League of American Bicyclists recognizes May as National Bike Month. Of course most of us cyclists know that EVERY month is “Bike Month”.  However, it is nice that efforts are being made to promote bicycling and increase awareness. We look at this as an opportunity to celebrate a fun, healthy, clean and green lifestyle.

On a personal level, I’m going to to celebrate this month by bike commuting to work on “Bike To Work Day” (Friday, May 21) if I can’t do the “Bike To Work Week” (May 17-21). I realize that this isn’t much of an effort compared to my bike commuter friends, but it’s a step (or pedal push) in the right direction.
