May is Bike Month in TKPK! Celebrate with a Variety of Bike-related Activities


Get ready to dust off your bikes and join us as we pedal our way through the month of May! This month-long celebration is packed with exciting activities and events aimed at promoting cycling as a fun, healthy, and sustainable mode of transportation:

  1. National Ride A Bike Day is the first Sunday in May on May 5th! It’s a great day to join up with family and friends for a bike ride.
  2. Bike to School Day – On May 8th, students and parents are encouraged to ride to school together and learn about proper helmet fitting and basic bike safety. Check with your school administration or PTA for details about your school’s Bike to School Day celebrations. How many items can you spot from the scavenger hunt?
  3. Learn to Ride Bike Classes for Adults – It may be too late to sign up for our May 11th Class, but please join the waitlist so we can know how many people are interested in classes to schedule for next year:
  4. Bike to Work Day – On May 17th, we encourage everyone to ditch their cars and pedal to work. It’s a great way to reduce traffic congestion, get some exercise, and start the day on a positive note. Stop by one of the three (3) pit stops this year! Takoma/Langley Crossroads, Downtown/Old Takoma and Sligo Trail on New Hampshire Ave. For more information and to register, visit
  5. On-going Bike Repairs – Be sure to stop by and get your bicycle in top shape for the season. Bike Werks will be onsite to perform minor repairs, parts will be available to buy onsite, and installation of those parts is covered by the City of Takoma Park! Get dates and more information here:
