After a dreary April, things were downright nice in the Northwest yesterday—just the way you’d want to start May, which happens to be Bike Month (in BC, you’ll have to wait til June.)

Groups across Cascadia are hosting commuting challenges, rides, and events to get people on their bikes.

If you’re in Seattle, check out Cascade Bicycle Club’s page of events and resources, and if you’re in Portland try Bicycle Transportation Alliance’s Bike+Walk site (here’s Boise,Corvallis, Spokane and Bellingham, too).

May 16-20 is Bike to Work Week (culminating on May 20 with commuter stations, prizes, and parties).

If you need a little extra inspiration, check out CBC’s new video:

I’ll be out there, hope to see you on the road!
