Bike Month is an opportunity for people to try riding a bike for the first time, learn new skills, or simply have fun and connect with new people. It’s taking the time to rekindle the youthful magic of exploring your neighbourhood by bike or share that joy with the next generation of bike riders. Bike Month is a celebration of biking. 

Bike Month 2020 is going to be a little different than years past, but there are still going to be plenty of opportunities to get outside, be healthy, and ride a bike. For starters, Bike Month 2020 is running in September instead of its usual June appearance.

New this year is our Start Biking Challenge that provides you with everything you need to know to start riding a bike, either for the first time, or the first time in a long time!

We've also launched the Bike to School Challenge which will help you encourage the kids in your life to bike to school safely!
