TAKE PART IN THE NATIONAL BIKE TO WORK WEEK

May is National Bike Month and is celebrated in communities from coast to coast. Established in 1956, National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling and encourage more folks to giving biking a try.

BIKEIOWA co-hosted the first organized "Bike to Work Day" on May 16th 2003. That grew to "Bike to Work Week" in 2005 and the Des Moines Bicycle Collective took over in 2011 to create "Bike Month" (with focus in the Des Moines metro) as we know it today.

HOW TO CELEBRATE BIKE MONTH?

Bike Month is so much more than riding your bike to work. 
  • It's about riding from here to there. Riding around the block, riding to get coffee, riding to work, date-night ride, riding on a trail or road, riding to get/stay in shape or running errands.
  • It's about inspiration - riding further and encouraging others to bike. 
  • It's about riding your bike whether if be for fun, fitness or with family and/or friends. 
  • It's about riding your bike places it’s never seen or take your bike places you’d usually see by car. 
  • It's about your wellness, happiness and community well-being.
  • It's about safer streets and connected communities and a healthier planet
  • It's about exploration and finding new ways to get from here to there.

Invite friends and co-workers to ride with you. Help them get their bike, clothes and gear ready. Offer advice and assistance to increase their confidence. Educate them on bicycle etiquette for riding on trails, roads, with other cyclists, motorists and others on the trails. And have Fun!
