May is National Bike Month. As an avid cyclist and promoter of all things two-wheeled, I invite you to celebrate with me. Whether it’s riding your bike to work a few times this month, or getting out there for a casual ride on the weekend with family and friends, I encourage you to go for it!
I find a tremendous amount of joy in biking. Being able to experience the sights and sounds of all that is around, to positively interact with people, and to gain a perspective on the world you can’t get from a car or a subway is invigorating. And let’s not forget the health benefits! Cycling is a low-impact form of exercise that reduces stress. It also improves your cardiovascular fitness and promotes heart health. Cycling also builds strength and muscle tone, and helps you burn off excess body fat.
Check out these great bike themed events happening throughout May in New York City, including the Bike Expo, free bike maintenance clinics- even the 14th Annual Blessing of the Bikes!
