San Diego Bike Coalition Launches Month-Long Celebration of Biking in San Diego County this May

• Bike Month offers opportunities for local community to enjoy socially distanced and virtual events
• Bike Coalition to partner with Love to Ride for bike-themed challenges for all riders across San Diego County

San Diego County CA— The San Diego Bike Coalition invites riders of all abilities to join in on a month-long celebration of biking this May. This year’s Bike Month, an annual recognition of the many benefits of biking, will feature several family-friendly bike-themed challenges and webinars, as well as thousands of dollars’ worth of prizes for participants.

Bicycling has many benefits for health and quality of life. The Bike Coalition acknowledges that even though riders must still take safety precautions into consideration, including physical distancing, people of all ages and abilities can still enjoy Bike Month.

How to Participate

The Bike Coalition is partnering with Love to Ride San Diego to offer a series of riding challenges that will encourage solo or pod rides for new riders and seasoned commuters alike. Love to Ride participants can set riding goals for themselves, share photos and earn points for encouraging new riders. There are also more than 50 prize drawings with great gear. In order to win prizes, participants must register on Love to Ride and complete the weekly challenges. It’s free to join and free to participate. Each challenge has its own rules and eligibility criteria.

Events will take place all month long. See below for a list of dates and events:

“Over the past year, we’ve watched a boom in biking throughout the region as people were eager to find safe, socially distanced ways to enjoy the outdoors,” said Bike Coalition Executive Director Andy Hanshaw. “This year’s Bike Month will celebrate the many strides we’ve made toward safe biking in our communities.”

“CV Sciences’ mission is to improve quality of life through nature and science by offering safe and effective CBD products to support health and wellness. As a San Diego-based company, we are excited to partner with the San Diego County Bike Coalition to support their month-long celebration of biking,” said Chief Executive Officer of CV Sciences Joseph Dowling. “Many of our employees are cycling enthusiasts so we are excited to host a pitstop for the Gordy Shields Memorial Ride, where our team will be onsite to speak with cyclists about the benefits of PlusCBD, hand out samples, and interact with our fellow San Diegans.”
