TMACOG Bike Week 2011 Events

There’s a good reason why May is National Bike Month. The end of ice and snow and the first warm days are when most people who enjoy self-propelled transportation pull their bikes out of storage and get ready to ride.

During the annual TMACOG Bike Week, TMACOG reminds drivers to look out for cyclists, and always share the road. We also highlight some of our area’s bike riding facilities (large PDF), distribute maps and guides, and encourage people to use bicycles to commute to work or school.

Please join local bicyclists in one of these events. More details are available online at http://www.tmacog.org/bikeweek.htm.
