A Whole Month for Bikes!

Updated: Apr 24, 2022

In case you didn't know May is National Bike Month. What does that mean? Basically, across the country folks celebrate bicycling through special events and advocacy efforts. Here in Winston Salem we've got some fun stuff happening. Whether you're new to biking or someone who's been riding forever, like to ride on the road or on trails, there's probably something you'll enjoy.

We've created a calendar listing all the events we know about in the Winston Salem area. Check it out and pick some stuff to participate in with your family, friends, coworkers, etc. You can also help spread the word by sharing the calendar within your circles and consider volunteering to make these events a success.

WS CAN also hosting our first-ever Bike Bingo Challenge. This is a great way to explore the city, enjoy the lovely spring weather, and get in some miles in May. Participants can choose their own adventure and work to get 5-in-a-row for Bingo. Submit proof of your Bingo and you'll be entered into a drawing for an awesome bicycle-themed gift basket.

The Annual Ride of Silence is an important ride to honor people who have been injured our killed while riding on the roads. It's a short route with police escort. We want to get a large group out to raise awareness and pay tribute to those harmed while riding.

Bicycling 101 Class and Group Ride is great for beginners as well as people who've been riding awhile and just want to learn more about the bike fit, laws and etiquette, or maintaining their bike.

Bikemore is a family-friendly bicycle festival hosted by the Ardmore Neighborhood Association. A portion of the street will be closed off to traffic so riders can enjoy it freely. There will food trucks and tons of activities for all ages. Volunteers are needed! Sign up if you can help you.

Camel City Crusher is a local race raising funds for youth racing. So not only will you have a blast, you'll also be supporting the next generation of cycling athletes.

There are many more events planned for Bike Month so check out the full calendar. We strongly encourage you to take full advantage of the festivities. Bring your friends along for the ride and be sure to post your photos and videos using #ibikewinstonsalem so the whole word can see how awesome bicycling is!
