The first National Ride A Bike Day is coming Sunday, May 2

May is Bike Month, and this year we’re kicking it off with an inaugural Ride a Bike Day.

The League of American Bicyclists has the details here.

Celebrating National Ride A Bike Day is simple: go for a ride – any ride. Whether it’s a short trip on a bikeshare bike or a double century, any way you choose to ride a bike is the right way to ride a bike.

We hope you’ll join us on Sunday, May 2, for National Ride A Bike Day and then keep the celebration of biking going throughout Bike Month in May.

I never oppose an excuse to riding a bicycle. Between this Ride a Bike Day, the finale of 30 Days of Biking in April, and a whole calendar of bicycle activities through the rest of May, we have plenty of national events and holidays to choose from.
