ICYMI, it’s National Bike Month, which was established in 1956 by the League of American Bicyclists. With warmer temps on the horizon, now is a great chance to get back on your bike and experience the benefits of cycling (think: exercise, the opportunity to get outdoors, a new way to see our community, and more).

Don’t have a bike of your own? There are a variety of bikes you can use to explore the Kansas City area, including e-bikes to help you conquer hills or adaptive bikes that can give wheels to those with disabilities. Read: There’s a bike out there for everyone. (See pricing details for rentals here.)

Kansas City’s bike share system, RideKC Bike, is also offering 30% off annual memberships throughout May.

The Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) is celebrating biking by highlighting different community events around the region, from group rides and bike repairs with WycO Bike-O to weekly KC family bicycle rides on the Trolley Track Trail, and so much more.

Bonus: MARC offers access to resources like the Regional Trails and Bikeways Map to help you plan your own ride. You’ll also find bicycling education guides, which give you the tools and skills to try biking for transportation.

Passionate about biking? Listen to the stories of Kansas City area residents who love to bike — and while you’re there, tell us your own bike story.

Pedal away, KC.*
