May is National Bike Month : We Want Your Events

by Bike Shop Girl

In less than a week the 2010 Bike Month will be starting up for what looks to be the best year ever.  With such a great vibe and high from the National Bike Summit in March, many organizations are pushing for larger and stronger events.

Bike Month 2010

Tell us about your local efforts on getting people on bikes this May.  I’ll be working on a list for Commute By Bike approved events.  If you need ideas or a helping hand, visit BikeLeague.org for a How to Guide.
