Since 1956, May has been recognized as National Bike Month. National Bike Month has been acknowledged through Mayoral Proclamations in Columbia within recent years. There are many reasons to ride a bike - whether it is for work, school, to save money or time, to preserve your health or the environment, or to explore your community, there are many ways to participate in Bike Month in Columbia.
This year, as with almost everything else in our daily lives, Bike Month celebrations must be different. May is still Bike Month, and when more people ride bikes, life is better for everyone. We hope that those of you who celebrate Bike Month in typical years will continue to do so through virtual, solo, or safely distanced activities in May 2020, and beyond. By following @ColaCompass on Facebook or Twitter, you can join us as we celebrate May as both Bike & Preservation Month virtually.
National Bike to Work Week and Bike to Work Day have been postponed until September by the League of American Bicyclists, given the extraordinary and constantly evolving impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on everyday life. These events have been rescheduled to occur September 21-27, and September 22, accordingly.
