For more than a decade, Norfolk has been celebrating National Bike Month each May. It’s a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling — and encourage more folks to giving biking a try!
In 2021, we'll be celebrating as always, but with more focus on learning the ropes and biking in your neighborhood. Some annual events will return - join us for Bike to Work Week (and Day!) – but we encourage you to bike solo or with friends and family. Bike to coffee or just around the block for some fresh air. With a focus on well-being and safety, we’ll be highlighting how you can #BikeThere during Bike Month and experience Norfolk’s expanding bike network and trails. Whether you’re riding for fun, fitness or with family, or taking essential trips to work or shop, you are part of a movement for safer streets, connected communities, a healthier planet, and happier people.
Norfolk Bike Month is a city-wide community celebration sponsored by Lime and organized by the City of Norfolk, Downtown Norfolk Council, HRT’s Traffix, the Elizabeth River Trail and many other partners.
Norfolk celebrates Bike Month with a few signature events:
Weekly easy, medium and fast-paced rides with community cycling groups

Many of the shops also host free regular rides, ranging from spandex road trips to casual neighborhood jaunts. Start bike shopping!
