Bike Month is a celebration of biking: an opportunity for people to try riding a bike for the first time, learn new skills, or simply have fun and connect safely with others.

Bike Month 2021 is going to be a little different than years past, but there are still going to be plenty of opportunities to get outside, be healthy, and ride a bike.
