Pedal and Pledge for Bike Month

Following a difficult year to get out and about, OCTA has a new challenge to get everyone up and moving: Bike Everywhere Month.

The 31-day challenge features activities every day such as bike with a family member, bike five miles, and bike to get lunch. During May, traditionally known as Bike Month, there’s something for everyone to celebrate on two wheels.

Those who pledge online are entered to win one of two prizes, a Trek FX 2 Disc Bike or a Saris Bones 2-Bike Bike Rack. Prizes were provided by sponsors Jax Bicycle Center and Spectrumotion. Those who ride every day can earn up to three entries, and bonus entries are awarded for sharing on social media and joining the Strava Club, which allows participants to track their progress and compete with others.

Before you get rolling, remember that bike safety is everyone’s responsibility. Visit here for a quick refresher about the rules of the road for bike riders of all ages, motorists, and pedestrians.
