National Bike Month Coming to a Close!


Have you noticed more people riding their bikes lately?


That’s because May is National Bike Month. With June just around the corner, there are only a few days left to get in on it.


Here are a few ideas to get you stoked.


  1. Grab a few friends, pack some food and drinks in a backpack and go for an adventure on your bike.
  2. Ride your bike to work or school like this fellow from London.
  3. Ride down a mountain.
  4. Embrace your inner hipster and learn how to do a “track stand” on a fixie.
  5. Finally, if you’re going to go for number three just don’t be this guy.


Have fun knowing you’re emitting zero emissions and staying healthy!


SOLO wants you to get outside and ride your bike!
