Cycling down the path of life

May is National Bike Month – Get Off Your Gas and Ride! Win a Sweet FUL Backpack.

The League of American Bicyclists is the national sponsor of Bike Month. This year’s National Bike Month is May and is a great excuse to enjoy the benefits of riding a bicycle. Some of them include:

  1. Saving money by not buying gas
  2. Saving time by not sitting in traffic
  3. Getting great exercise
  4. Preserving the environment
  5. Having fun and enjoying the outdoors

The League of American Bicyclists have created a page that will let you search for biking events in your area. See what’s happening locally.

Do what you can to promote this fun-themed month. May is a month where nice weather is abundant throughout most of the United States, so you don’t have too many excuses not to be pedaling. So if you’re an avid rider, keep up the good work. If you are however someone who needs to dust off the ole’ cruiser, then dig it out of the garage and use this month to rediscover the power of pedaling!

  1. I love pedal power!

  2. I’m not only encouraging people to ride more this month, I do it every day. I always tell people how much better I feel at work when I ride my bike in, how nice the ride was, and I especially love when I hear somebody talking about how much they’ve spent on gas. My bottle of water was at most $1.50!

  3. Been commuting by bike since last August. Trying to ride with my kids any chance I get to forge lifelong cyclists.

  4. i have been a bike commuter in both portland & minneapolis for the past two years.
    this bag looks great!

  5. Great giveaway! This reminds me that I need my bike tuned up too. Thanks!

  6. Since I didn’t ride my new bike at all last month, I will definitely be riding more this month. I’d love to win this backpack.

  7. Nice backpack! I’ll get my bike out this week. :)

  8. Appreciate the blog.

  9. I bike to work every day, but I’m always happy to celebrate a biking holiday!

  10. Thanks for offering such a great prize! The FUL Backpack will make my commute much easier!

  11. Obviously this is a hilariously late comment, but I own this pack and it’s great.

  12. Great post. I will be dealing with many of these issues as well.
