Every year, Buffalo celebrates Bike Month. Starting in May, the city kicks into high gear, by throwing bike friendly events, rides, parties, seminars and anything else that relates to our self-propelled two-wheel modes of transport. As you can see, there’s a full schedule of events, aimed to get you out on the road. It’s time to get outside. It’s time to get social. It’s time to discover your city. It’s time to get on your bike!
Bike month is sponsored and organized by the fine people at GObike Buffalo!
