Bike Month!

Updated: Jun 27, 2023

May is just around the corner. It's time to celebrate Bike Month!


Bike Month is a great reminder to embrace the outdoors, get some exercise, and take advantage of all the benefits of cycling.


Health Benefits


Cycling is a low-impact form of exercise, making it a great option for people of all ages and fitness levels. Plus, cycling can be a good way to recover from injury in some instances and is even part of some people's physical therapy routine. Biking can improve cardiovascular health, increase muscle strength and endurance, and help with weight management. Plus, it's a great way to get some fresh air and sunshine.


Eco-Friendly Transportation


Biking is an eco-friendly mode of transportation. Cars emit pollutants that contribute to climate change and pollution. Biking, on the other hand, produces zero emissions and helps reduce congestion on the roads. By choosing to bike instead of drive, you reduce your carbon footprint and help protect the planet.


Safety First


While biking is a fun and healthy activity, it's important to always put safety first. Make sure to wear a helmet, use hand signals when turning, and follow traffic laws. If you are driving, be sure to watch out for bicyclists and keep a safe distance. If you or someone you know is injured in a bike crash, please contact our office right away to see if we can help.


Events and Community Building


If you're not already an avid cyclist, here are some good activities and community events that can inspire you to dust off your helmet and head outside this May.


May 20 – Boxing Out Negativity Street Love Ride, St. Agatha Church, North Lawndale, Kedzie & Douglas Blvd.


If you want to develop your own event, Active Transportation Alliance offers mini-stipends to support advocacy work and community-based events that promote cycling.
