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!

Join Simsbury.Bike on Love to Ride
What is Love to Ride?
Love To Ride is a free online platform for riders of all abilities to log bike trip information and encourage biking through online community connections, goal-setting, and friendly competition using leaderboards and challenges. Ride information may be entered manually or by syncing from fitness apps Strava or Map My Ride. Riders set personal goals, participate in an online community, and may compete for prizes and awards offered by the Love to Ride platform. Most prizes are awarded by random drawing.
Love to Ride hosts a number of challenges throughout the year including the Bike Month Challenge in May, Cycle September, Winter Wheelers and the National Bike Challenge (May to September). Riders may join groups/clubs, ride with a Team or Workplace, or participate as a solo rider.
Year Round Connections
The Love to Ride platform operates year-round, and many local riders also connect virtually through our Strava Club Simsbury.Bike.
