Advocacy | May is Bike Month

Guess what?! May is Bike Month. And the good news is that it’s not just here in San Luis Obispo: this is a national event! So wherever you are, there are bound to be opportunities near you.

First and foremost, the best thing that you can do—both for yourself and for the cycling movement as a whole—is to join the National Bike Challenge. Whether you want to compete against your friends, other businesses, or want to see the dramatic effect that commuting has on your life, wallet, and health, joining the National Bike Challenge is a must. It’s pretty incredible to see how fast those miles add up!

If you’re on the fence about this whole “bike commuting,” “save the whales” nonsense, then joining the National Bike Challenge is an especially good idea. When you join the Bike Challenge you can create a Team to challenge other Teams, or simply create a Team of friends who will collectively gather miles. These friends will also help motivate you to keep pedaling and keep contributing to the group effort of MORE miles! It’s always fun to make connections with other people getting out there in the same weather, on the same roads as you.

If you’re lucky enough to live in San Luis Obispo County, the below is a full list of events happening throughout the entire month of May in SLO County.
