I would have been remiss if I let today pass without mentioning that May is National Bike Month.
Hopefully, the weather in May will be a little bit more conducive to cycling than it has been in April.
There are a number of great ways to celebrate Bike Month. The best and easiest, naturally, is just riding your bike whenever you can.
But as with anything these days, there are also a bunch of official events. For a complete list of events, check out the League of American Bicyclists Web site.
And, of course, no National Bike Month would be complete without a Bike to Work Week and a Bike to Work Day. This year, May 12 through May 16 will be Bike to Work Week, while May 16 will be Bike to Work Day.
As someone who uses his bike to get back and forth from work quite often, I highly recommend giving it a try. Nothing helps erase the tensions of a work day quite like a spirited ride home.
