May is Bike Month and we want to share in celebrating all things bicycle! As you know the the bicycle is an amazing source of enjoyment, fun and recreation, but did you know that the bicycle's impact has been the source of social revolutions?!
Through the month of May, Trips For Kids Charlotte will explore the impact of cycling on the people in your community and ways to empower yourself with the knowledge to take to the streets and maintain your ride. Whether you are young or young at heart, or new to cycling or even a seasoned user of the pedal power; Trips For Kids Charlotte's celebration of the bike has something for everyone to learn!
