Did you know that May is National Bike Month? I came across a blog post over at BlogHer sharing some great tips and resources for National Bike Week. I found the Pretty Tough blog being featured. Pretty Tough is for girls, parents, coaches, and anyone interested in playing sports or motivating, inspiring, and cheering on female athletes.
National Bike Month Notes:
- May 16 – 20, 2011 is officially “Bike to Work Week” and Friday, the 20st is the 17th annual “Bike to Work Day.”
- Sadly, there is also an official “Ride of Silence” to honor fallen cyclists–which is also a nationwide observance on May 20. Join cyclists worldwide in a silent slow-paced ride in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.
- The League of American Bicyclists promotes awareness of National Bike Month by offering “50 ways to celebrate bike month.”
