May is National Bike Month!
Help promote bicycling this May and every month! The League of American Bicyclists is the sponsor of National Bike Month, which includes Bike to Work Week and Bike to Work Day. National Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride. Whether you bike to work or school, are trying to save money or time, to get in better shape and be healthy or to save the environment- get involved in Bike Month in your city or state and help others get involved too.
What can you do this month to participate?
Friday May 17, 2013 is the National Bike to Work day. Ride your bike to work during all of Bike to Work Week (May 13-17).
As a driver of a vehicle that shares the roads with bicyclists, understand that cyclists have road rights as well so follow these 10 rules for coexisiting with bicyclists:
- Appreciate Bicyclist Vulnerability
- Know Bicyclists’ Rights
- Adjust That Attitude
- Consider the Benefits of Bicycling — for Drivers
- Spare Them the Right Hook
- Beware the Left Turn
- Give Cyclists 3 Feet of Clearance
- Look Around — but Not at Your Phone
- Look Before You Exit Your Car
- Accept That Bicyclists Are Here To Stay
Check with your city and state to find out activities that are happening in your area during National Bike Month.
