May is National Bike Month; and in that spirit, we encourage you to support and maybe even join a bicycle club in your area! If you’re not involved in a club – or perhaps there isn’t one in your area – we have a great new manual that will help you and your bike-loving friends get underway with the organization and planning process. The manual explains how to start a new club, as well as how to manage your existing club more effectively.
