May is PDX Bike Month

PDX Bike Month logoMay is National Bike Month so get ready to celebrate Portland style. The month is filled with events hosted by PBOT's Active Transportation and Safety Division and others. This year's theme is #bikemore. Here are some examples of how you can participate in Bike Month:

- Register for the Bike More Challenge - every ride counts this year!

- Recruit a friend - one who's curious about biking but hasn't hit the road yet.

- Join us for a Bike Month Kick-Off Party on Friday, April 29 at Pedal Bike Tours, 133 SW 2nd Ave, 4:30-7:00pm.

- Bike to Multnomah County Libraries - bring the whole family and get a free light for your bike (one per patron while supplies last).

- Join your school community in participating in the Walk + Bike to School Challenge Month.

- Come to a class or a ride, or join the fun by volunteering at one of the activities.  

- Ask your employer to host an event, or organize one yourself. Tell your boss about the Employers Bike Summit.

- Tell us about your event - we'll help spread the word via our Twitter feed (@PBOTActive, hashtag #bikemore).
