It’s Bike Everywhere Day!

May is Bike Everywhere Month and today is Bike Everywhere Day, the traditional start for many to increase their biking to work, to school, for errands, or just for fun. With nicer weather (finally!), drivers should expect to see more people biking everywhere.

Riders stop to enjoy some swag at City Hall Plaza at a Bike Everywhere event.
