Bike Month

May Is Still Bike Month

Bike Month

COVID-19 changes a lot of things, but it doesn’t change that May is Bike Month! Whether you bike to work; ride to save money or time; pump those pedals to preserve your health or the environment; or simply to explore your community, Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride.

Bike Month celebrates all the reasons to ride no matter your destination or trip. The MORPC Gohio Commute team loves to bike for a more sustainable commute, a healthier lifestyle, and to get to know our communities.

We are experiencing a difficult time as the region recovers from the impacts of COVID-19. However, it isn’t all bad. Across the country people are biking more than ever for recreation and necessary travel. We hope that this Bike Month will help encourage the continuation of this behavior.

Share your Bike Month rides on social media with the hashtag #BikeMonth and #MoveYourWay to help encourage biking in Central Ohio!

Practice recommended social distancing practices while you bike or scooter this Bike Month. Make sure your trips are only with people you have been quarantined with and stay 6ft away from others to protect yourself and those in our community who are vulnerable due to age or severe underlying chronic medical conditions. Continue to check the Ohio Department of Health, the Center of Disease Control and Prevention, and the World Health Organization for health recommendations and the latest COVID-19 information.
