And while it is important to always ride defensively, wear a helmet, and take precautions against the many dangers of biking, there’s no reason to forget that riding a bike is just plain fun. Whether you are an avid cyclist or prefer a casual ride along the beach, here are five ways to get out and enjoy National Bike Month in Florida.
Bike to Work Week
Take on the fun and eco-friendly challenge of participating in Bike to Work Week May 12 – 16. If you live within riding distance of work, enjoy a change of pace by commuting via bicycle for at least five days. Added benefits include getting some exercise, saving money on gas, and a potentially shorter commute time.
