WHAT: When a week’s worth of events proved popular with the public, the organizers of Bicycle Week opted to expand it to Bicycle Month in 2008. Bicycle Month 2013 has arrived and now includes more than 30 events and activities from March 1 through March 31. The purposes of this special month are to promote bicycle safety and education; to provide leisure and recreational bicycling opportunities for all ages and abilities; and to offer competitive/challenging cycling opportunities throughout Broward County within both the public and the private sectors.
Bicycle Month 2013 is made possible by Broward County, along with Broward B-cycle, the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization, CycleMobility, the Florida Department of Transportation, the Florida Velodrome Association, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, the South Florida Bicycle Coalition, and South Florida Commuter Services. Together these organizations have committed to hosting bicycle rodeos, recreational rides, nature bike hikes, track racing, and rides for the physically disabled.
