MAY IS BIKE MONTH
Let's start with a hearty "way to go!" to everyone who rides a bicycle anywhere in Memphis! Memphis is making great strides to become a bicycle-friendly city, because you – and your bicycle – are steadily increasing the number of cyclists on the streets.
May is National Bike Month and the great weather makes it the perfect time to invite friends, neighbors, and family outside to bicycle. Check out the Bike Month Calendar listings of beginner rides, family-friendly activities, and special events, and invite away.
If you’ve been thinking about bicycling, but something always gets in the way, we can help. Memphis Hightailers and Revolution Bicycle Coop provide beginner sessions, bike repair classes, and more. Just take the first step and reach out.
Don't forget to sign up for Memphis Commute Challenge and earn your points (to brag and win prizes).
Safe and happy riding, y'all!
