Bike To Work Week Is May 13th – 17th 2019

Bike Week is an annual international event. It is full week event that promotes, advocates and celebrates bicycling for transportation. Bicycle commuting has been steadily gaining popularity in American, Asian and European cities and countries over the past decade as more people are interested in finding ways to achieve healthy, sustainable and economical way to get to and from work.

 

History of Bike To Work Week

In 1923, the first Bike Week was held in the UK. It was then this wonderful tradition of promoting riding your bike to work was born. This annual event is almost a century old!! Some dates of a city’s Bike Week can be different, but the event remains the same.

Positive Changes From Bike Week

The popularity of Bike Week has encouraged cities to do major overhauls in regards bicycle commuting. Many cities that hold annual Bike Week have committees who push for these improvements of the city for cyclists and bicycle regulations. Providing bicycle lanes on city streets, bicycle specific stop signs, Green Ways, DIY bike repair stations and robust bicycle laws are being implemented and also demanded by cyclists. This demand is causing positive change in bicycling communities and also the cycling industry.

Also if you haven’t been on your bike for a while please make sure it is safe to ride and make any needed bike repairs. It will be better to know about them before you leave for work rather than on your commute there. You can bring you bike to a local bike shop for a spring tune-up or needed maintenance or you learn how to do these repairs yourself at home with the DIY Bike Repair Online Tutorials Program.

Please wear a proper fitting helmet for bicycle safely.  Below is a link to Amazon’s Best Seller in Adult Bike Helmets. It is the Schwinn Thrasher. It offers a lightweight Microshell featuring a 360 degree comfort system with dial fit adjustment. They offer many colors and sizes for adults, youth, and children. Also a fun way to promote bike safety especially for cyclists that are biking at night are these Spoke Lights. They are so fun and look so cool!!! To think I just had an old playing card and some tape when I was a kid. Anyone else remember doing that?

 

Get geared up for Bike Week 2019!!!  See you on the bike path! Nicole

  1. Hey Nicole,

    I’ve really enjoyed reading this article as you’ve provided us with tons of valuable information on “Biking To Work”. I can’t wait for the 2nd week of May, it’s gonna be really exciting! From my perspective, I tend to think that this campaign should be held for 1 whole month and not just just for 7 days. A lot of pollution would be avoided if more people did this. I’m gonna share this post with my friends!

    Thanks a lot for taking your time in writing this blog. Keep up the good work Nicole!

    1. Hi AV! Thank you for taking the time to share such kind words! I am very excited for this week also!! I hope many newcomers to bicycling find out that it is wonderful and beneficial. I hope you and your friends enjoy Bike Month!! All my best! Nicole

  2. Awesome article Nicole. I never heard of Bike Month ever before. I’m glad that I glad to know about it through your site. I love bicycles and on top of that May is my birth month. It’s exciting for me to know that my birth month is actually a worldwide ‘Bike’s Month’.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this article. I can see that your website is dedicated to the bike’s related article. I’d love to read them.

    1. Hello akshaysaxena! Let me be the first to wish you a Happy Birthday!! I am thrilled that you can now celebrate Bike Month and your Birthday together! FUN! Thank you for being here and your kind words! All my best! Nicole 

  3. Hello, 

    This is a very interesting and also helpful event. I haven’t heard of it before, but after reading this post, I starting looking for more information about it and if people in my country did something in Bike Week, but I couldn’t find much. In my country it has recently started to providing bicycle lanes and there aren’t many streets that have them. Besides, there aren’t many regulations as in other countries, and the regulations we have aren’t sometimes being obey.

    I hope there’s an event in my city that’s been organized but I don’t think it will happen. However, I hope people all over the world have the chance to celebrate this and encourage more people to ride their bikes.

    Great work spreading news about this international event,

    Mariana
