May is Bike Month

May is Bike Month in the Kansas City region.

We’re celebrating KC Bike Month at MARC and want you to join us.

There are many reasons to ride. Biking is fun. It saves money. It improves physical and mental health. It’s good for the environment. And, during the month of May, you could win prizes just by riding and joining the KC Bike Month Challenge. Simply register at RideshareKC.org, log your bike trips and you’ll be entered to win.

Biking is also a means of transportation to work for many. If you have considered an alternative transportation option, Bike to Work Week (May 16-20) might be a good time to try biking for your commute. Our Bike Month partner, BikeWalkKC, created the Bike/Walk Friendly Business Guide to help people get started. It is a pocket-sized, user-friendly brochure with practical information on how businesses can be more supportive of employees and customers who walk and bike.

Get more information online about KC Bike Month and find events and resources to help you get started and celebrate biking. You can also request a copy of the Regional Trails and Bikeways Map or use the map online.

Let’s ride!
