Support National Bike Month
May is National Bike Month, a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling — and encourage more folks to giving biking a try! It's also time to remind our leaders that we support bike infrastructure from bike lanes to bike highways.
The shift to riding bikes instead of driving will help #saveourseaice and benefit polar bears because it will reduce the amount of carbon emissions pumped into the atmosphere. That's important because transportation accounts for almost 30% of greenhouse gas emissions.
Expanding biking in your community can make an impact.
Ready to get started?
- Start riding your bike more often and invite friends, family members, and colleagues to join you in making cycling a habit.
- See our Community Action Biking Toolkits, one for adults and one for kids, for ideas and support materials on how to expand biking where you live—from bike commute challenges to infrastructure changes.
- Share our pre-made social media images and content to help build momentum.
- Finally, share photos or videos of your actions on Instagram with #saveourseaice. We'll feature them on our Save Our Sea Ice Community Page.
