The month of May is officially National Bike Month, also in Tallahassee. Both the city and the county will make the bike month proclamation at their next commission meetings. Various events will be organized this month. City planning staff together with community partners will be kicking off the month with the Tallahassee-Leon County Bicycle Expo, on Tuesday, May 1st, 6 p.m. at the Anita Favors Thompson Plaza at Lake Anita (under the Duval Street overpass at FAMU Way and S. Adams Street). There will be a food truck, Sneauxball Catering Co., and planning staff will walk participants through the ins and outs of traveling around Tallahassee on two wheels. Some topics that will be covered include basic set-up, equipment and safety. Bird Legs Bicycles, the Great Bicycle Shop, Higher Ground and Bicycle House will be on hand for bicycle tunes ups and to offer maintenance tips and tricks.
Once your bike is ready to go, Planning Staff will lead a ride through Cascades Park to officially kick off the month! If you’re interested in cycling but don’t have a bike, there will be Pace Bike Share bikes on hand for rent.
