Ride with Your Kids! May is Bike Month

Fun family-friendly cycling events for Bike Month

Put your helmet on and let’s ride! The weather is just perfect for learning to ride a bike and practicing doing so as transportation. Here are dozens of great places to teach an East Bay kid how to ride a bike.

Bike East Bay offers many wonderful family safety bike clinics, rodeos, helmet fittings, and family-friendly events throughout the year. There are two upcoming family cycling safety courses in Concord and Livermore. Find some more events on the Bike East Bay calendar and ongoing programs on their Family Cycling resource page.

Bike to school or daycare on May 4

Let’s roll with it. (Walk or) Bike to School day is officially May 4 and is lots of fun; different schools will do it their own way — with a few on different days — but the general message is to get more kids riding or walking for fun and transit.

Bike to the moon midmonth

Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools offers other programs and incentives for young cyclists. May 9 to 13 is Bike to the Moon Week!

Bike to Wherever (formerly Bike to Work!)

The day formerly known as Bike to Work Day is May 20! Go where you want to. Bike around town and be greeted by fabulous community members with treats and encouragement. You can pick up commemorative tote bags at nearly one zillion East Bay Energizer Station locations.

If you have any other bike tips for May, please share them with us!

Bike East Bay is offering an assortment of their wonderful family safety bike clinics, rodeos, helmet fittings, and family-friendly events throughout the month of May. I see some great ones in Berkeley, Oakland, Concord, and Alameda that you might want to check out.
