Not only is May National Bike Month but May 12-16 (this week) is designated as Bike-To-Work Week and Friday, May 16th, is designated as Bike-To-Work Day by the League of American Bicyclists. Did you know that? I didn’t until just recently. I’m surprised I hadn’t seen or heard anything about it. Not only have I not heard much about either of these two events on the Internet but I’ve heard absolutely zero about them in my hometown. I find that amazing. These types of events won’t gain popularity unless the word is spread.
A quick check of the Internet has yielded zero events in my hometown for National Bike Month, Bike-To-Work Week, or Bike-To-Work Day. That totally blows me away. I believe I may have a mission for next year.
