Safe bicycling is encouraged all year-round. However, there are two key months of the year, March and May, when bicycling is most celebrated in the State.
- Florida Bike Month: March has been designated as Florida Bike Month due to our ideal spring climate. Florida Bike Month, similar to national initiatives, promotes healthy lifestyle choices by encouraging physical fitness to help reduce the chances of chronic illness and obesity. Increased bicycle usage helps lower motor vehicle emissions and global warming.
- National Bike to School Day: The National Bike to School Day festivities, taking place on May 7, 2014, further promote safe bicycling skills and activities throughout the District. All schools are encouraged to participate. This event builds on the successes of the Walk to School Day initiative celebrated throughout the world each October.
