May 2020 is National Bike Month!

May is bike month promotional graphicMay 2020 – Established in 1956, National Bike Month is an opportunity to showcase the many benefits of bicycling and encourage others to give it a try. While we are all functioning differently during COVID-19, this is a great time to hop on a bike and enjoy your neighborhood, a park, or trail and get some exercise.

Bike/Walk Tampa Bay is partnering with Love to Ride to host the Tampa Bay Bike Month Challenge, a fun campaign to help inspire people to ride bikes. The National Bike Challenge runs from May to September 2020. The community is encouraged to participate and set goals to show just how much they are enjoying biking. Remember to practice social distancing while riding outdoors and only ride alone, or with members of your immediate household. Visit Love to Ride’s website for more information about setting goals and winning prizes! In addition, there is information available on the site for upcoming cycling events.

The League of American Bicyclists is a sponsor of National Bike Month. They represent bicyclists in the movement to create safer roads, stronger communities, and a Bicycle Friendly America.
