National Bike to Work Day

National Bike to Work Day, Msy Calendar holiday

Date When Celebrated: Always the third Friday in May

National Bike to Work Day is a great opportunity to get some exercise, and to save gas.

Here is what National Bike to Work Day is all about. This information is straight from the League of American Bicyclists...........

National Bike Month was started by the League in 1956. The event was timed to coincide with the arrival of warmer weather. It has inspired countless bike rides, safety inspections, commuter challenges, ribbon-cuttings, "share the road" promotions, and other varied celebrations of bicycling in communities across the nation.

One of the most popular activities in Bike Month, is encouraging people to bicycle to work and forsake their motor vehicles for just one day. Bike to Work Week is the third week in May, and the third Friday in May is designated as National Bike to Work Day.

The League was founded as the League of American Wheelmen in 1880. Bicyclists, known then as "wheelmen", were challenged by rutted roads of gravel and dirt, and faced antagonism from horsemen, wagon drivers, and pedestrians.

Deep Thought for Today: I'd ask God for a bike, but I know it doesn't work that way. So, I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.
