Bike Month is celebrated in cities across the country and, simply put, it's a whole month dedicated to the tons of reasons we love to bike! From joining a group ride, to learning about Bikemore's advocacy work, or trying out biking to work — May is the month to join in! Check out the full calendar of Bike Month events here.
Can't decide which event(s!) to attend?
Thanks to our thriving biking community, there are more than 35+ events happening — that means something is happening almost every single day of May! And we know, with so many choices it's hard to decide, so we thought we'd help you out:
Which events is Bikemore hosting?
Some of the events during Bike Month are organized by us here at Bikemore, and lots more are organized by volunteers and members of our community. Here are the ones we're hosting — they're all great opportunities to meet and chat with Bikemore staff and learn about how you can get involved in making Baltimore a more bikeable city.

Why donate to Bikemore during Bike Month?
Just by looking at the calendar, you can tell that here at Bikemore, we do a whole lot with just a little! Throughout the month we'll be highlighting programs we run and projects we've worked on to give you an inside look at Bikemore's work. We'll share what we've accomplished with the resources we have, and how much more we can achieve with your support.
Plus, we consider a member anyone who has donated to Bikemore in the past year — and all members will receive a free beer ticket at our Annual Member's Meeting!
