Riding your bike is a great way to get healthy exercise, and can be a practical way to commute and run errands.
Try it all month!


May is National Bike Month and TMACOG is the local sponsor of Bike Month. Use this web page for information about our area’s bike riding facilities and other maps and guides.

During Bike Month and all year long TMACOG reminds drivers to share the road – keep an eye out for cyclists,
give them a 3-foot space when passing.


Safety Inspections – Get Ready
for Bike Month in May

Throughout the month of May, bike shops in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan are offering free bike checks to help cyclists prepare for a safe and fun season of cycling. Cyclists are invited to bring any
sort of cycle to the participating shops for the free
ABC quick check.
   • Air in the tires
   • Brake adjustment
   • Cranks and Chain inspection
   • Quick release mechanisms check
   • Check the bike overall
The free ABC quick check should only take a few minutes for each bike. Any needed repairs can be scheduled with the shop.

People bringing bikes in to the shops will also receive a copy of Drive Your Bike, a guide to using a bicycle for commuting and everyday transportation.
