May is Bike Month

Iimages-1s your bike ready for a great month of bike riding? I hope so.

There are many opportunities for all lengths and types of rides this month. I hope you challenge yourself to get out and ride as often as possible on some of these rides.

A great place to start is riding your bike to do a few errands. Transportation equals recreation when you are on a bike. Seriously, the miles will add up, your legs get stronger, your weight gets lighter and you are doing something fun and good for the environment.

The Highland Rim Bicycle Club has several things in store to celebrate May being Bike Month, but I would like to encourage you to set yourself a personal goal to ride more and enjoy this beautiful time of year and the gorgeous place we live.
