Durham Celebrates Bike Month 2019!

Bike Month will be celebrated in Durham throughout the month of May.  Through group rides, cyclist socials, giveaways, workshops, and other events, Bike Month provides opportunities for all Durham residents to celebrate bicycling in our community.

The history of Bike Month dates back to 1956 and is intended to raise awareness and promote safety for all road users.  National Bike Month is promoted by the League of American Bicyclists, and activities are celebrated in local communities nationwide.  The City of Durham has participated in National Bike Month for several years and has had great success in promoting bicycling as a safe and viable way to commute, stay healthy, and have fun.  

Durham's Bike Month Kick-Off will be on Friday, May 3.  This is a fun, social event to celebrate biking in Durham. There will be a casual bike ride, giveaway items, kid station, and more!  The event is sponsored by Bike Durham and the Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Commission (BPAC), and all the details are on this poster.
