Celebrate National Bike Month in May!

Sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists, National Bike Month was established in 1956 and has been celebrating bicyclists every May since. Check out their website for interesting bike-related information like the most bike-friendly states, where to find bike-friendly communities, and tools and resources to advocate for bikes at local and state levels. You can also download this fun Bike Month Bingo sheet.  

Be sure to check out TrailNet, a St. Louis based biking and walking advocacy and education group. You'll find various biking events to participate in, including a Scavenger Hunt to complete during the entire month of May. While National Bike to Work Day (usually held on the third Friday in May) has been postponed until September 22nd, you can participate in another Scavenger Hunt, the Bike to Work Day Tribute Scavenger Hunt

Looking for a bike trail? TraiLink lists 44 popular trails in the St. Louis region, just look for the bike symbol next to the trail name. St. Louis Magazine also made a list of five trails for family rides. 

While you may be riding solo, you can find fitness/cardio/workout playlists on Freegal along with a lot of songs with the word 'bicycle' in the title, if you're so inspired. And you can still check out bike books digitally. Check out the list of bike-related titles below and celebrate National Bike Month at a safe social distance:
