National Bike Month

National Bike Month (May) celebrates all the reasons people ride — for fun, fitness, transportation, and health; and all the ways bicycling makes communities stronger —  like boosting the local economy and community spirit. 

    

Simsbury's annual Bike Month celebrations have included events, rides, classes, safety campaigns, and more.  Join us as we Bike to Work, Bike to School, and bike for fun!
