May is National Bike Month. With expanding bike trails, bike sharing services, plenty of bike shops, a high rate of bike commuters and a strong cyclist community, bicycle culture is rapidly growing in Cincinnati.

It’'s a national program designed to assist children in low-income areas in becoming both healthy and literate. Some other events coming up include a spooky Bike Prom on Friday the 13th, Bike to Work Week from May 16-20 and Bike to Work Day on May 20.
