Bay State Bike Week 2016Now that Spring is here and winter weather is finally leaving us, it’s time to start thinking about Bay State Bike Week! Every May, Massachusetts residents and bike commuters come together to celebrate human-powered, two-wheeled transportation during Bay State Bike Week. This year, the week-long celebration will take place from May 14th- 22nd.

Throughout the Commonwealth, participants organize bike-centric events to encourage new riders and raise awareness about the many benefits of bicycle transportation, so make sure to register or join an event! Bay State Bike Week has something for all kinds of riders, whether you’re a newbie to biking or a seasoned cyclist!

I’m Ready to Participate! What’s Next?
