Did you know that MAY is National Bike Month?
What a better way to pull out the old bike (fill up the flat tires) and ride somewhere. On a trail, to work, the store, with your family, friends, or just around the block!
Simply by choosing to ride your bike this month, and especially on bike to work day (May 18th is National Bike to Work Day), you can help generate political momentum for safe and bike-able streets! Bike to work day shows transportation planners and politician,s that there is a need for a network of bicycle trails, lanes, boulevards, signage and new innovative facilities. By cycling together, we can make a difference!
Before you ride, please be safe and prepared by learning or reviewing the "rules of the road".
Idaho has many wonderful trails in the Coeur d'Alene, Post Falls area. Below are a few links for the local trails, and an ITD link that has useful information on rules of the road or even bicycle maintenance:

Wishing you Happy and Safe Bicycling!!!!
