May is National Bike Month

Apr 28, 2014

May is National Bike Month, a month-long event trying to get couch potatoes outside, cars off the roads and subway trains empty. It encourages everyone to get back onto their bicycles to enjoy riding a bike as often as they can during the month (and hopefully longer). May is the beginning of the summer and warm weather, so why not start right away and enjoy that sunshine!

Evening Out the Environment

Creativity over carsCreativity over cars

Bike month helps promote how everyone can pitch in to help the environment. Even if you’re biking to school, you are helping bring down the pollution that is obviously having dramatic effects on the world. Air pollution is the most common form of pollution and by getting your family to stop driving and start riding a bike, you can do your part in helping the World improve the air quality.

Count Down those Calories

Cycling isn’t just good for the environment it’s good for you too. Riding a bicycle burns calories and helps keep you in shape. Not only does it improve your physical health, but also your mental state of mind. Knowing that you are doing something good for you and the environment can really help you be a happy person.

Share the Sunny Summer

Bike with your friendsBike with your friends

So get into that shed, and take out that rusty bike. Slap a nice coat of blue paint on it. Load up your iTunes with a bunch of songs. Grab a group of friends to bike-pool to school. Set-up a bicycle date with the boy you have a crush on. Whether you’re a kid learning with training wheels, a future sponsored BMX trickster, or just a normal fun-in-the-sun-child, get on your bike and ride this May.
