Bike Month

I know I'm a little late with it, but...Happy Bike Month! It's that most wonderful time of the year when bicycles and the people who ride them get a tiny sliver of attention. To those who say "I bike every month, so May is nothing special.", I say "Bah humbug, you smug Debbie Downer". This is a time to encourage our fair weather cycling (or non-cycling) friends to get on their bikes. The more people on bikes on the streets the better things are for everybody. Plus, there's free breakfast. Free breakfast.

There are tons of events about bikes, and biking to work, for fitness and general transpo. Check out Bay State Bike Week for a state wide list of events. Sign up for the Mass Commute Challenge to register your bike week miles (ps. the Bike Bash is really fun). The bikeyface Bikenic will give you a chance to talk with folks of all cycling abilities, and it's a picnic! Check out the Rush Hour Race, on Monday (my money's on Bike Safe Boston, obviously).
