May is National Bike Month
and Bike to Work Week is May 15, 2015
The League of American Bicyclists began Bike to Work Day as part of Bike Month in 1956. Over the years, Bike to Work Day has grown into a widespread event with countless bicyclists taking to the streets nationwide in an effort to get commuters to try bicycling to work as a healthy and safe alternative to driving alone. In the Metropolitan Washington region, Bike to Work Day has grown from a small group of a few hundred in 2001 to over 14,000 participants in 2013. This year the annual Bike to Work Day will be held on Friday, May 16th. Rain or shine!
