National Bike Month

National Bike Month 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 celebration includes events, rides, classes, safety campaigns, and more.  New in 2022, we are hosting the Bike-To-It! Bike Month Pledge event to encourage people to bike for transportation.  Join us as we Bike to Work, Bike to School, and bike for fun!
