It’s bike month!

Once again Durham has quite a few events planned to celebrate bike month (don’t let the hail and rain scare you off, I’m sure the weather will get better). According to a press release sent out by Durham’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator Dale McKeel:

Bike Month will be celebrated in Durham throughout the month of May. Through group rides, cyclist socials, giveaways, workshops, and other events, Bike Month provides opportunities for all Durhamites to learn more about safely bicycling in their community.

The first event is called the “Bull City Bike Fest,” which is going to be tomorrow (Saturday, May 2) at Solite park, running from 9 a.m. to noon. According to Dale’s email:

Activities include pump track demos, rides on the ATT with the Duke and UNC cycling teams, a Kids Parade (open to the public), Gateway Trail rides and pump track challenges.  Information booths will be present from many local cycling groups.
