Whether you bike to work or school; ride to save money or time, pump those pedals to preserve your health or the environment, or simply to explore your community, National Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride. Sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists and celebrated in communities from coast to coast, May is National Bike Month. The observance was established in 1956 and is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling — and encourage more folks to giving biking a try. Here’s my homage to bikes and bicyclists.
