Celebrate National Bike Month and Bike to Work Day

May is National Bike Month…and SCA encourages everyone to adopt a greener lifestyle and get on your bike! National Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the bicycle…and the many reasons to ride it.

  • The environment
  • Health
  • Exploration
  • Pleasure and simple enjoyment!

This week is National Bike to Work Week, with Friday, May 18th being Bike to Work Day! Put your helmet on and get on your bike. Whatever you do, make sure you do it safely.

SCA staff, members and crew leaders in Pittsburgh and Charlestown are commemorating National Bike to Work Day in honor of our colleague Dan Yablonsky. Dan was struck by a vehicle while riding his bike earlier this week in Pittsburgh; we all continue to monitor his condition. Dan joined SCA’s Green Cities Corps in February to expand Bike-Pittsburgh’s Car Free Fridays and Bike-Friendly Businesses programs, while also serving with the larger Green Cities crew on city-wide sustainability projects.
