Get on a bike to get outside, get active and stay healthy!

National Bike Month is so much more than 31 days in May. It’s a celebration of bikes; an impetus to get rolling again; a gateway to riding more often; a time to evangelize the beauty of bikes; and much, much more.

With a focus on well-being and connection, we’re highlighting how bikes unite KC and benefit physical and mental health. Whether you’re riding for fun, fitness or with family or taking essential trips to work or shop, you are part of our movement for safer streets, connected communities, a healthier planet and happier people.
