May is Bike Month – Put on Your Helmet and Saddle Up!
League of Michigan Bicyclists (LMB) and Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance (MTGA) announce that May is Bike Month, May 14-18th is Bike to Work Week, and Friday, May 18th is Bike to Work Day. New this year, May 9th is also the inaugural National Bike to School Day.
We are currently working with Representative Anthony Forlini (R – Harrison Township), a bicyclist himself, to introduce an official Bike Month resolution in the House of Representatives similar to year’s past.
Americans have been commemorating National Bike Month each May for 55 years. Timed to coincide with the arrival of warmer weather, the event has inspired countless bike rides, safety inspections, commuter challenges, ribbon cuttings, “share the road” promotions, and other celebrations of bicycling in communities across the nation.
