The League of American Bicyclists is the national sponsor of Bike Month, Bike to Work Week (May 14-18), and Bike to Work Day (May 18). These important events promote bicycling and commuting by bike, which are great activities as good for your health and our community as they are exciting and fun.
We take part in these cycling festivities and appreciate how getting more people on bikes improves our community with less congestion, noise and pollution. We also appreciate how Bike Month helps awareness of cycling and cyclists and improves everyone's safety. Please join us in enthusiastically supporting the following safety goals of National Bike Month!
Bike Month's five basic goals and national strategies for advancing bicycle safety include:
- Motorists will share the road
- Bicyclists will ride safely
- Bicyclists will wear helmets
- The legal system will support safe bicycling
- Roads and paths will safely accommodate bicycling
Make sure you and your family are aware of the following rules and guidelines before you head out onto the streets.
If your bike needs a tune-up or you have any questions such as how to properly fit a bicycle helmet, how to lock up your bike securely, or what bike paths are fun to venture out on, please stop by the bike shop – we are here to help!
