May is National Bike Month!


“When I see an adult on a bicycle, I do not despair for the future of the human race.”  ~H.G. Wells

I’ve been meaning to start biking to work for years now—so with it being May, and with it being National bike Month, this is the year to get my butt in the saddle again!

May 14-18 is National Bike to work Week, and May 18th is Bike to Work Day.   Did you make it to work on your bike?  

I keep thinking if I could just bike once or twice a week it would be a great workout—and I love to be outside.  I just need to plan ahead a bit more so I’m not car dependent on those days.  I have a great trail I can ride, and my house-to-office is a perfect distance, with eagles and wild turkeys to boot.  I also have great Junonia padded shorts and leggings that make the ride comfortable.  No more excuses!

Do you usually ride to work?  Are you going to keep riding to work after May 18th?  Send us a picture of you and your bike and we’ll post them throughout the summer.

If you need to brush up on the rules of the road, or for advice on any bicycling question, check out the League of American Bicyclists at www.bikeleague.org 

And of course, If you are looking for fabulous padded bike shorts, leggings and fun bike tees, check out Junonia!
