May is Bike Month!

May is National Bike Month, and here in the Philadelphia area we have plenty of events to keep you celebrating the freedom of two wheels all month long!

Whether you want to explore murals and urban gardens by bike, enjoy car-free drink specials, take an Urban Riding class with our Bicycle Ambassadors, or participate in a number of fun rides, there's something bike-related for you in May.

Beginning next week, the Philadelphia Commuter Challenge will begin! Register as an individual or with a team to log the number of trips you make by bike this month, and win great prizes from us! Then, Bike Month will culminate in National Bike to Work day on Friday, May 21st, bigger and better than ever!
