The very merry Bike Month of May

Did you know that May has historically been recognized as National Bike Month? Indeed, the monthlong celebration of everyone’s favorite two-wheeled, human-powered vehicle was established in 1956 in an effort to encourage more Americans to take up pedaling. This year, the Transportation Department will be hosting #BikeMonthATX on its social media platforms throughout May, “posting each day about biking tips, places to cycle, bicycle advocacy organizations, community conversations surrounding bicycling and more.” Austin is a notoriously bike-friendly city, as the city’s All Ages and Abilities Bicycle network can attest. So use this month to get in the saddle, explore some new-to-you urban trails and don’t forget to post some photos on your social media network of choice.
