Bike Everywhere Month 2022



 

 

What is Bike Month?

Bike Everywhere Month is a time to support, encourage, and celebrate all things bicycling. Join us and the League of American Bicyclists in proving that no one celebrates pedal power like Washington. Get ready for warm-weather riding with a host of virtual events and some in-person activities.

  • Bike Everywhere Day is May 20, 2022. Keep scrolling to find a celebration station near you.
  • The Bike Everywhere Challenge runs the whole month of May.
  • Pledge to Pedal throughout May by replacing one car trip every week with a trip by bike.
  • Take a look at our calendar for details.

The best way to celebrate Bike Everywhere Month is simply to get on a bike: ride to work, ride to the grocery store or just ride for the sheer joy of being outside and soaking in the sun after a long winter.
