May is Bike/Walk Month! Get on it now!

From Local Motion
Bike/Walk Month
Monday, 23 April 2012 10:03
Nationally, Bike Month started in 1956...but we do things a bit differently -- we include walking as well as cycling!
Here's a short list of some of the exciting components for Bike/Walk Month this May:

National_Bike_ChallengeSign up for the VT Bike Challenge! This fun season-long campaign challenges all of us to bike more often.  Sign up today!  It starts in May and continues through August.  Sponsored by Earls' Cyclery & Fitness.  One lucky entrant will win a free bike tour from Sojourn Bicycling & Active Vacations -- valued at over $2,500!

May 2: Walk 'n Roll to School Day! Join us in celebrating Vermont's inaugural Walk and Roll to School Day! This day is a great way to encourage positive changes in community culture, and to create environments that are more inviting for everyone, young and old.  Families and schools, click here to participate in this fun event. You can also bike to school the following Wednesday May 9th for the national Bike to School Day.

May 5: Bike Swaps! Skirack and Earl's Cyclery host their annual swaps.  It's a great chance to sell your old bike or get a new one.

Thank you to the City of Burlington for helping fund this month-long promotion!
