Happy Bike Month 2012!

Happy Bike Month!

Our friends at Electra Bicycle Company.
It's our favorite time of year at the offices of your bicycle coalition.

Today, together with County Supervisor Greg Cox, San Diego City Councilmembers Todd Gloria and David Alvarez and San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) Chair Jerome Stocks, we officially declared May 2012 as “Bike Month” in San Diego.

The event, which was well attended by local bicycle commuters and covered by local media , highlighted the importance and benefits of bicycling as a form of transportation and recreation here in San Diego County. An eclectic display of designer lifestyle bikes and accessories were also on hand from locally based Electra Bicycle Company and all of the distinguished guests tested out the bikes during a ceremonial kickoff ride at the conclusion of the event.

The SDCBC is excited for the month ahead and encourages all to get out and “Join the Ride” all throughout the month of May.  There are dozens of activities and events taking place during Bike Month and information can be found on our calendar.

Happy Bike Month!
