Get out and on your bicycles in May as often as you can. Talk to your friends and share ways to boost your days in the saddle! The League of American Bicyclists is suggesting 3 specific activities you could be a part of no matter what country you live in:
1. May 9th is Bike To School Day - May 9th. If you have a school age child ride with them to school, bring your STRIDER Rider along. The best part is you get to ride back to pick them up!
2. Bike To Work Week - May 14th-18th. Commit to riding to work for one week. Chances are you'll find out it's easier than you think and you'll discover new things about your town or city as you roll through a little slower than usual. Have to drop the kids off at daycare? Park your car and ride to work from there or swap the driving duties for the week with a spouse or loved one.
3. Bike To Work Day - May 18th. This is the day to make sure you ride to work! Tell all your co-workers, hassle your boss to install a bike rack and make sure your bike is in tip-top shape.
If Being on a bicycle isn't a big part of your life already, hopefully this month can help to get you out there a little bit more. We hear so many stories about how STRIDER parents are inspired by their toddlers to get back on bikes after years of barely riding. It is a fun, easy way to interact with your STRIDER Riders and it has the added benefit of being pretty healthy to boot!
