May is Bike Month

TMACOG wants all cyclists to learn to safely use a bicycle for healthy commuting. Regular or even occasional bike commuting reduces air pollution and road congestion. There are many opportunities for bike education and for fun throughout the region in May.

There are dozens of group rides scheduled in May, from road races to introductory touring rides on bike paths. To see a calendar of some of the opportunities, click on the Google calendar here: http://www.tmacog.org/bikemonth/. Check out the links on that page for more details on area bike clubs and cycling information of all kinds.
