Lubbock on a Bike: May Dates (National Bike Month 2015)


The National Bike Challenge began eight days ago. There's still plenty of time for anyone to join. Please do! As of today, there are eight riders from Lubbock who have logged miles in the challenge. And there is room for lots more! Remember, the challenge runs through September 30. Here is a chance for the Lubbock niche issue to show that we do indeed ride here.

(Lubbock-area cyclists, if you join the challenge, please consider joining the LUNA-tic Bikers Challenge Team. We'd love to have you!)

Next week (May 11-15) is Bike to Work Week and Bike to Work Day (Wednesday, May 15). Learn more here:

So Lubbockites, Texans, Americans, you have the weekend to get those tires aired up and the chains oiled. Here's your chance to get healthy, save money, and increase your joy. How about it?

One more bike date to remember is May 20: Ride of Silence. I have not seen any news about it for Lubbock this year, but I will keep my eyes open.

May you find health and joy while your feet are pushing pedals.
