May is National Bike Month! The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted this celebration. Read on to find news and information about updates to National Bike Month celebrations.

Walk & Bike to School Day is about community, safety and health. Right now our communities need us to focus on health in a different way. This year, due to COVID-19, coming together is not advised. Depending on your community’s situation, we hope individual families will get outside for a walk or bike ride when possible.

The celebration of Walk to School Day has been postponed to October, but suggestions are available for participating from a distance and on social media from May 4 to May 8 to help continue the strong sense of community that makes Bike to School Day so powerful.

The League hopes that the hundreds of thousands of you who participate in Bike Month events in typical years continue to do so through virtual, solo, or safely distanced events in May 2020, and beyond.

National Bike to Work Week 2020 will take place September 21-27, 2020. Bike to Work Day is Tuesday, September 22!
