Bike Month is a national month-long celebration of the bicycle. For the entire month of May, we celebrate the two wheeler all around Los Angeles County. From group rides, workshops and community-hosted events; there is no shortage of bike related events. Bike Month is for everyone. Whether you ride for fitness, transportation or for fun, you can find an event for you and maybe try something new.
On Bike to Work Day , Thursday, May 16th, leave your car at home and try commuting by bike with thousands of other Angelenos. Bring your bicycle or bike helmet on Metro Bus or Rail to ride for free on Bike to Work Day. To claim your free ride on Metro Rail at gated stations, use the intercom located near fare gates to notify an attendant who will open the ADA gates for you.
An often overlooked, but extremely important aspect of Bike Month is bicycle safety. Metro sponsors classes at varying skill levels that are FREE, interactive, and take place all across the county. During these classes, you will improve your cycling knowledge and be better prepared to ride in a real world setting. Register for Metro bike classes .
Metro also sponsors fun group bike rides throughout the county. Find out more about these rides in the calendar tab above, or on Facebook .
