12th Annual Norfolk Bike Month
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 2023, we'll be celebrating like always, with 31 days of rides and plenty of opportunities to get those wheels rolling. Two of Norfolk's favorite bike events return - join us for the Bike Expo and Glow Ride. We still encourage you to bike solo or with friends and family. Bike to coffee or just around the block for some fresh air. Whether you’re riding for fun, fitness or with family, commuting to work or taking a quick jaunt around the block, 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.
