It might be snowing right now, but May will be here before we know it. May is National Bike Month. That means we have three months left to plan bicycle activities that will last a whole month! Of course I believe the focus will be Bike to Work Week, and especially Bike to Work Day.
I found the following information on the The League of American Bicyclists website.

May is National Bike Month – The League of American Bicyclists is promoting Bike-to-Work Week from May 12-16 and Bike-to-Work Day on Friday, May 16.

There is a wonderful set of resources on the LAB site as well, including:

  • National Bike Month Organizer’s Kit
  • Sample Bike Month Proclamation
  • Bike to Work Commuter’s Booklet
  • BikeEd Brochure
  • Bicycle Friendly Communities Brochure
  • Web Banners
  • National Strategies for Advancing Bicycle Safety

I participated in Bike to Work Week last year by riding in to Carson from Gardnerville a couple times. But since I was pretty much just going straight to work, I really didn’t get to see all that was happening around town. Now that I’m living in Carson City, I’ll be able to hit all of the events.
I’d like to hear from you about what you felt was successful last year, what we could do better, and any new ideas. Make a comment here, or send me an email.
I’m still compiling a list of my ideas, and I’ll share them soon. Stay tuned!
