There are some real­ly won­der­ful projects going on this month to sup­port cycling. As you know, cycling is more than just a form of exer­cise or sport. It pro­motes a health­i­er lifestyle and it’s less tax­ing on the environment.

The Adven­ture Cycling Asso­ci­a­tion has orga­nized the Build It. Bike It. Be A Part of It. cam­paign. They’re work­ing to raise $30,000 to sup­port the cre­ation of an offi­cial U.S Bicy­cle Route Sys­tem — the largest bike route net­work in the world!

And The League of Amer­i­can Bicy­clists has two handy resources. One is a guide to help you pro­mote your bike event and a data­base of bike events so you can search for one in your community.

What have you done to cel­e­brate or pro­mote Nation­al Bike Month? This is Bike to Work Week (Fri­day is Bike to Work Day), do you bike to work? How can employ­ers make it eas­i­er for you to do so?
