May is National Bike Month--Springfield becomes Bicycle Friendly Community; list of Missouri events

May is National Bike Month

.

And that means it's time to get out your bike and ride!

We have extra reason to celebrate this year because Springfield, MO, has been officially declared as a Bronze-level Bicycle Friendly City by the League of American Bicyclists.

Springfield joins two existing Bicycle Friendly Communities in Missouri--Columbia (Silver) and St Louis (Bronze)--and two Bicycle Friendly Businesses--REI St Louis (Gold) and Velocity Cafe & Cyclery (Bronze).

Here are just a few of the events celebrating National Bike Month that are happening across Missouri:

An essential part of MoBikeFed's Vision of Bicycling and Walking in Missouri is to promote more safe, healthy bicycling & walking through events like Bike Month.

Our Vision also includes the goal of having 1 silver-level and 5 bronze-level Bicycle Friendly Communities in Missouri by 2013, and an additional 5 communities working towards Bicycle Friendly Community status.
