It’s Bike to Work Day today and the entire month of May has been deemed Bike Month or 30 Days of Biking. The League of American Cyclists launched this month-long celebration of biking:
National Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride. Whether you bike to work or school; to save money or time; to preserve your health or the environment; to explore your community or get to your destination, get involved in Bike Month in your city or state — and help get more people in your community out riding too!
There are many creative ways that Bike Month has been promoted this May, from the newly instituted Bike to School Day to 30 Days of Biking and more, but this crafty video, “The Convert” is one of our favorites so far.
Created for Jacksonville’s Bike Month, “The Convert” takes a film noir approach to cycling — and keeps you watching and wondering the whole way through. Take six minutes out of your day to check it out see where it takes you!
Every Wednesday on Ditch Your Car we’ll be bringing you just another reason to spend more time on two wheels. Be it a photo, a statistic or an inspirational video, we want to keep reminding you about why riding is great!
