May is National Bike Month, sponsored by theÂ Â League of American BicyclistsÂ and celebrated in communities from coast to coast. Established in 1956, National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling â€” and encourage more folks to giving biking a try.
Itâ€™s a celebration of bikes; a reminder to get rolling again; a gateway to riding more often; a timeÂ to evangelize the beauty of bikes; and much, much more.
Whether you bike to work or school; ride to save money or time; pump those pedals to preserve your health or the environment; or simply to explore your community, National Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride. The momentum is building: With growing cultural awareness around health and wellness, sustainability and economic savings, bicycling is being seen by new and broader audiences as a simple solution to many complex problems, from reducing obesity rates to increasing mobility options.Â This year, we want to hear from you. Whatâ€™s your â€œwhy?â€Â With so many reasons to ride, whatâ€™s yours? Use the hashtags #WhyIRide and #BikeLocalSM #BikeMonthSM on social media and also tag @SMSpokeÂ @BikeLeague!
Each year the number and diversity of Bike Month celebrations continues to grow, accelerating the momentum around bicycling nationwide.
