TAKE PART IN THE NATIONAL RIDE A BIKE DAY
We think today, Earth Day, is the perfect day to start thinking about Bike Month and the many ways we can all begin incorporating biking into our lives. Whether you’re already a daily rider or you’re still just biking curious, Bike Month offers a host of reasons and ways to think about biking there. Where’s there? Well, try biking to the store or to meet a friend. Try biking to your next errand or to the ice cream shop. Try biking for fun or fitness, whether it’s around the block or your first fifty miler.
We firmly believe that life is better for everyone when more people ride bikes. On National Ride A Bike Day, let’s all ride bikes together, wherever we are and at our own pace, to take part in a collective action and kick start making life better for everyone.
There are so many reasons to bike: because riding a bike is fun! Because riding a bike brings us joy, health, and happiness. Because when more people ride bikes, life is better for everyone. And because when all of us who ride bikes ride together on National Ride A Bike Day, we can show our neighbors and our leaders why making it easier, safer, and more accessible to ride a bike is so important to so many people.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention an important one: a recent study found that when an individual replaces one car trip per day with a bike trip, that person reduces their carbon emissions from transportation by 67 percent. Just one small change in your daily life can mean you are contributing to a healthier future for our planet and nation.
Celebrating National Ride A Bike Day is simple: go for a ride — any ride. Whether it’s a short trip on a bikeshare bike or a double century, any way you choose to ride a bike is the right way to ride a bike.
We hope you’ll join us for National Ride A Bike Day and then keep the celebration of biking going throughout Bike Month in May.
RIDE SAFE !!
