May is “National Bike Month”

by The Woodlands

Did you know that May is National Bike Month? Celebrating the power of bikes is sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists and is celebrated in communities from coast to coast.

National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling and to encourage more people to give biking a try.

Whether you want to explore biking to work or to school, or just for exercise or fun, biking is a great way to get in some low-impact exercise while taking in the local scenery.

Biking is excellent for people of all ages and a great way to engage the entire family outdoors. Plus, it’s green and is good for our planet.

Communities that feature biking trails are ideal. The Woodlands features 214 miles of hike-and-bike trails and pathways in addition to bike lanes along the major thoroughfares. The Woodlands also includes over 4,000 acres of open space and 146 parks.

This May, give your car a break, jump on your bike, and pedal, pedal, pedal. Join the fun and don’t forget to wear a helmet!
