Traditionally, Bike Month has been a regional community celebration of biking as a healthy, economical and environmentally-friendly form of recreation brought to you by the Downtown Norfolk Council and the City of Norfolk. When more people ride bikes, life is better for everyone.
It’s why this May, we are still celebrating Bike Month, because bicycling is more essential to our lives than ever—and because we could all use some bike joy to look forward to. We hope that those of you who participate in Bike Month events each year continue to do so through virtual, solo, or safely distanced events in May 2020, and beyond.
Downtown Norfolk will be postponing Bike to Work Week until September 21-27, 2020, with Bike to Work Day and the Glow Ride coinciding with Car Free Day on September 22, 2020.
This year Bike Month will be different. With less focus on biking to work, we’re going to focus on riding “there” whether “there” is to the grocer for essentials or to the park and back with the kids. We are encouraging everyone to think beyond biking to work and move towards a holistic approach to integrating bicycling into as many aspects of our daily lives as possible. Happy riding!
