September is Bay State Bike Month!
From Cape Cod to the Berkshires and everywhere around and in between, riders in the commonwealth are encouraged to organize bike-centric events to bring out new riders and raise awareness about bicycling for transportation, fitness, and fun. Whether you’re looking to join one of hundreds of events statewide, or host your own event, Bay State Bike Month has something for everyone.
This September's celebrations include our signature event, the MassCommute Bicycle Challenge (MCBC), September 19-27. We’re going largely virtual this year, but are still encouraging folks to get out and ride and track their miles to win prizes and build community through virtual events.
MassBike is teaming up with MassCommute and the Massachusetts coalition of Transportation Management Associations (TMAs) to bring you statewide bicycle programming and challenges during Bay State Bike Month.
