National Bike Month is here!

Welcome to another edition of National Bike Month! Bike Month may not feel particularly special to those of us who are year-round commuters…however, this is a great time to encourage folks “on the fence” to give bike commuting a try.

Here’s a cute little video from the People For Bikes group to share:

Happy two-wheeling, everyone!
