Get a Handle on National Bike Month

Happy National Bike Month, y'all! Do you plan to get out and ride this weekend?

The weather in Lafayette is looking pretty perfect all weekend, so I think I'm just going to have to get my husband and go for a little leisurely ride! Grab the sunglasses, crank up the music and enjoy the sunshine.

National Bike Month began in 1956, making for 61 years of celebrating a fun activity, mode of transportation, and health benefit!

What is your favorite reason for riding a bicycle? Mine is simply for the feeling I get while I ride - the slower pace, the opportunity to observe more around me, the wind in my hair, and the endorphins that are released. (Not included are the feelings of encountering ignorant drivers.)

This year will be an especially fun National Bike Month to celebrate, since I get to do it as a Schwinn Ambassador. I'll have a post coming up this month on the Schwinn Red blog, highlighting our weekend at Festival International! I'm still so glad the weather held out for us to ride all weekend, even if 15-20mph winds on Saturday made for a stressful commute (one gust definitely knocked me a little!)

Look my cute lil riding partner! We haven't taken his three-wheeler out much this year, but I'm definitely going to have to make a Moncus Park at the Horse Farm picnic date happen this summer. (And no, we haven't taken Dax on a ride through the neighborhood, ha.)


Throughout May, I'll be posting bike-related content, and sharing lots of photos over on my social media accounts!
