May is Bike Everywhere Month
Yes, everywhere and anywhere. To work, grocery shopping, getting kids to school, your pickleball court, places you’ve been meaning to go. Get even farther when you use a bike to get to your bus, train or boat.
Form a team, join a team on LovetoRide
Challenge or cajole your coworkers, neighbors, family members, friends – or yourself. It’s not all hard-core. Earn points for being a new participant, most rides, miles, different kinds of trips, encouraging others, or rides with kids.
King County’s teams have been among the most active in the past. If you form a team of King County employees, please register your workplace as King County Government, choose your department, then make up your team’s name.
