There’s a movement in LA. We are choosing to ride together, rather than drive alone. And more and more of us are trading four wheels for two. May is Bike Month and your chance to take that first step to join the movement.
Join Metro as we celebrate biking in LA throughout the month of May. You can “get your feet wet” during Bike to Work Week (May 13 – 19) or Bike to Work Day (BTWD) on Thursday, May 16 th .
View the Bike Month Map for an expanding list of BTWD pit stops set up throughout the county; one is likely offered on or near your route. At these pit stops, you will find refreshments to fuel you on your ride as well as free giveaways. Metro will be hosting our very own pit stop at Union Station in front of the Metro Bike Hub . Browse through the Bike Month Calendar for a growing list of fun bike-related events. “Recycle Your Bike” by the City of Long Beach and “Blessing of the Bicycles” at the Good Samaritan Hospital are just a few events for you to get into the spirit.
Metro Bike Lockers and Metro Bike Hubs are available to keep your bike secure. The hubs offer secure parking for bikes, as well as on-call mechanics and face time with friendly staff. Starting May 1 st , Metro Bike Hubs are offering two Bike Month promotions. Sign up online and use promo code BIKEMONTH-YR for 20% off a One-Year Pass, or BIKEMONTH-30 for a 30-Day Pass for $1.

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 .
