Hop on Two Wheels and Celebrate National Bike Month

Earth Month might be over, but the celebrating isn't, since today kicks off National Bike Month!

Riding bikes is one of my favorite things to do. My fiance and I have truly bonded over the years through bike rides. Before I got my own, I borrowed one of his, and we started riding to Festival International, Downtown Alive!, food truck roundups, Mardi Gras parades, football games, farmers markets, and other local events.

We ride for fun. We ride for exercise. We ride and geocache (okay, we did that once, but I'm up for doing it again!). We each rode to work for Bike to Work Week two years ago. We ride in Critical Mass. We ride and picnic. We ride to the park and play frisbee. We ride decked out with Christmas lights during the holidays.

We've biked over the Golden Gate Bridge. We've biked along Highway 30A near the beach. We've biked to brunch in New Orleans.

Biking one of our favorite pastimes because we get out of the house, explore our city, talk about whatever and make new memories (we rode the morning he proposed...talk about good memories!)


Why is it awesome to ride a bike?
  • You save gas money
  • You don't have any fuel emissions
  • You get exercise
  • It's a cheap date (free if you want it to be!)
  • You get to explore and see the sights of your hometown or your vacation spot, better than if you were driving or riding in a car
  • To borrow the saying from a bike shop t-shirt, you can put some fun between your legs!
  • You don't have to worry about parking
  • You can bring your pets along
  • You can take your children along
  • You can rock a helmet


What's YOUR reason for riding a bike?
