Mother Nature’s polar vibe makes it hard to believe, but next week is May – and May is National Bike Month!
May has been National Bike Month since 1956 and since 1992 Portlanders have received a free breakfast on a specified day during Bike to Work Week.
The tradition continues on Tuesday, May 17th from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. at Pioneer Courthouse Square. Friendly PBOT staffers will be there to serve you coffee, doughnuts, bagels, eggs in a nest and fresh fruit.
Many bike commuters have been created during Bike to Work Week, so if you’ve been thinking about giving bike commuting a try or have a co-worker you’ve been encouraging to do the same, now is the time to begin getting ready. You can order free bike maps and receive a free bike route plan here.
Stay tuned to Commuter Central for other Bike Month events.
