May is National Bike Month
May is National Bike Month, sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists and celebrated in communities from coast to coast. Established in 1956, National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling and encourage people to give biking a try.
Locally, the Bike Walk Greater Lafayette Network is endorsing many local events organized by bike clubs, teams, community organizations and businesses.
