NATIONAL BIKE MONTH
May is National Bike Month, sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists and celebrated in communities from coast to coast. Established in 1956,
National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling —
and encourage more folks to giving biking a try.
More than half of the U.S. population lives within
five miles of their workplace, making bicycling a feasible and fun way to get
to work. With increased interest in healthy, sustainable and economic
transportation options, it's not surprising that, from 2000 to 2011, the number
of bicycle commuters in the U.S. grew by more than 47 percent.
You can find a listing of Bike Month events throughout Columbus and Central Ohio at www.columbus.gov/bikemonth2017
JOIN THE NATIONAL BIKE CHALLENGE
The National Bike Challenge is a nationwide event
uniting thousands of current bicyclists—and encouraging countless new riders.
It is a free and easy way to challenge yourself, your colleagues and your
community to ride more. Users compete on a local, state and national level. The
Challenge aims to unite 75,000 riders to pedal 35 million miles from May 1,
2015 until September 30, 2015.
