Bike Month in McCall
May is National Bike Month!
National Bike Month is a time to get rolling! Biking brings people together, adds some great physical activity to our daily routines, helps curb our carbon footprint and can save us some green (money, that is). We are excited to expand Bike Month activities in the McCall area this year and wanted to share a few ways you can get involved!
Bike to work, bike to the store, bike to coffee. Take a photo and post it to your social media channels using #BikeMonthInMcCall

May 9th Bike to School Day: We love our youth and their enthusiasm for recreation. Our local Barbara Morgan Elementary School has organized their very own “Bike to School Day” on Wednesday, May 9th and all school-age kids are encouraged to participate! McCall Parks and Rec will be joining BMES along their route to pass out goodies and encouragement! Added bonus, if youth visit the McCall Public Library on their bike after school on this day they will get a snack and free bike spokes! SCORE.
Week of May 14th National Bike to Work Week: Join this national week and choose your two wheels instead of four to get to where you are headed during the day!
St. Luke’s McCall participated last year and made the event fun and competitive for their staff to ride bikes and even created a bike share program! Feel free to make this week your own version within your business, organization, or on your own. Challenge yourself to ride your bike one-day this week!
