May is National Bike Month! We have a whole month dedicated just to celebrate bicycles, and it's just a few weeks away!
We loved the way Bike Month went last year, where we highlighted all the different bicycles and bicyclists in our area! We will continue to advertise on our page and keep a calendar. This is just the beginning, if you have any rides or events you know of please let us know so we can showcase them for Bike Month! We plan on having a Kidical Mass, Bike To Work Day, contests, prizes, pictures...you name it!
We have also decided to make May BikeLafayette Membership Month! Every May it will be time to renew your membership to continue to help support bicycling in our area. Thank you so much for your continued dedication, bicycling is more widely accepted than ever in Acadiana and it is all because of you!
More to come, but May is being kicked off with our annual spring ride, the Ride For Rox. You can register here: Ride For Rox 2015
May 20th, 7pm, at the Mickey Shunick Memorial Ghost Bike (St. Landry and Dean St.) is where we host our local international Ride of Silence, where all riders who were injured or killed on public roadways in the past year are honored. This is a slow free, short ride with no registration fees and no sponsors. More to come.
