Riding your bike is a great way to get healthy exercise, and can be a practical way to commute to work or school. Try it this week!

May is National Bike Month and TMACOG is the local sponsor of Bike Week and Bike to Work day. This website for information about our area’s bike riding facilities (large PDF), and other maps and guides.

During Bike Week 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.

Please join local bicyclists in a Bike Week event.

Bike Week is May 12 – 22

All week, May 12-22, TARTA fare is only 25 cents for cyclists using bus bike racks. | www.tarta.com
