May is National Bike Month in the U.S., which is a nation-wide effort led by the League of American Bicyclists to get more people out on bikes. 

Held since 1956, Bike Month is a celebration and showcasing of the many of bicycling, with an emphasis on cutting down on car trips by replacing them with bikes. Whether you’re running an errand, commuting to work or school or meeting a friend for coffee, the bike is an excellent tool to get around town and get some movement in at the same time.
