May is National Bike Month
and Bike to Work Week is May 12-16, 2014
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!
