Bike Month Events for May!

Happy Bike Month!

To help celebrate, we have put together a list of the many events that are occurring throughout the great state of New Jersey! After all we are #5 on the list of bicycle friendly states! So in keeping with that trend there are many events planned that promote cycling, provide training for all ages, and encourage active transportation on two wheels! Although we have tried to prepare as comprehensive a list as possible, we hope that you – our readers – will provide us with any events that may have been missed or are not currently posted online. Please email them to us at njbikeped@ejb.rutgers.edu.

Happy Riding!
