May is National Bike Month across the US. This event was established in 1956 by the League of American Bicyclists and has become a fun, well-known event for many. There’s numerous reasons to ride and enjoy the benefits of bicycling – getting healthy, saving money, decreasing your environmental impact, or just having fun. Salt Lake City and the League want to encourage more residents to give biking a chance.
