Established in 1956, National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling — and encourage more folks to giving biking a try.

“In 2022, we'll be celebrating ways to #BikeThere during National Bike Month and National Ride A Bike Day on May 1, 2022. There are so many ways to celebrate Bike Month and to #BikeThere: during Bike to Work Week (and Day!), biking to coffee or around the block, and riding on May 1 for #BikeDay.

“With a focus on individual and community wellbeing, we’ll be highlighting how you can #BikeThere during Bike Month. Whether you’re riding for fun, fitness or with family, or taking essential trips to work or shop, you are part of our movement for safer streets, connected communities, a healthier planet, and happier people.”
