Bike Month Dates and Events

May is National Bike Month, a celebration of biking as transportation, as recreation, as essential to our well-being and everyday lives. May is also when the National Bike Challenge kicks off, and the challenge continues through September. In 2023, Bike to Work Week is May 15-21, with Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 19, 2023.

40% of all trips in the U.S. are less than two miles, making bicycling a feasible and fun way to get around.

In 2023, Bike to Work Day will be May 19

In 2021, the League launched National Ride A Bike Day to take place on the first Sunday of every May. In its third year, National Ride A Bike Day will be held on May 7, 2023. Read more about National Ride A Bike Day on our blog.

Hundreds of American communities have been successful in increasing bicycle commuting by providing Bike to Work Week and Bike to Work Day events.
