May is (still) Bike Month

Posted May 4, 2020

Hitting the streets during Bike Month? Remember to stay safely distanced from other riders.

When more people ride bikes, life is better for everyone. It’s why in May, the League of American Bicyclists is still celebrating National Bike Month.

Because we could all use some bike joy to look forward to, the League anticipates that the hundreds of thousands who participate in Bike Month events in typical years continue to do so through virtual, solo or safely-distanced events in May and beyond.

Given the extraordinary and constantly-evolving impact of the pandemic on everyday life, the League is postponing Bike to Work Week until Sept. 21-27, 2020, with Bike to Work Day coinciding with Car-Free Day on Sept. 22.

This National Bike Month will necessarily be different. With less focus on biking to work, the focus is on riding “there” – whether “there” is to the grocer for essentials or to the park and back with the kids.

Meanwhile, the National Bike Challenge, a self-motivated pursuit of biking for transportation and recreation, kicks off in May and concludes in September.
