The League of American Bicyclists (LAB) celebrates National Bike Month each year in May. It's a chance for people to consciously promote cycling and the many ways bicycling is such a fun and useful way to get around.
Many events in National Bike Month are clustered around the week of May 12-16. In particular, Friday, May 16 is National Bike to Work day. Many communities make a big deal out of this, with refueling stops along the way for cyclists to grab a bagel or some coffee, mingle just a bit and celebrate the event.
There are a number of terrific resources available to help with this. These might be useful to you or just good to pass along for someone considering taking their bike out more.
