May is National Bike Month

I Like to Ride my Bicycle!
If spring weather doesn’t make you want to get out and ride, just think of what bicycling can do for you. Bicycling is good for your: heart, children, smile, community, wallet, stress level, lungs, outlook on life, waist line, car, knees and joints, sex life, self esteem, sleep pattern, muscle tone, soul, everything...Most importantly, bicycling can save your life. To help promote bicycling, visit the League’s new National Bike Month(TM) site to download or order videos, Bike Month Organizers’ Kits, screensavers, quick tips on safety and maintenance, radio promos, and more.

The year 2003 will mark the 47th consecutive year the League of American Bicyclists has declared May to be National Bike Month™.

The theme for this year's National Bike Month™ is wellness. The League is promoting Bike-to-Work Week from May 12 - 16 and Bike-to-Work Day on Friday, May 16.

Bicycling is one of the most popular activities in the United States, and National Bike Month™ provides an opportunity for friends of bicycling and the League of American Bicyclists to sponsor educational programs, bicycle commuting events, trail work days, bicycle helmet promotions, and even bicycle film festivals to draw positive attention to bicycling. If you've ever needed an excuse to ride your bike, you can use the whole month of May as a reason!
