May is also National Bike Month. Share with others why you ride, and the League of American Bicyclists might even post your response on their blog, or leave your thoughts in the comments below.

If you are unfamiliar with the different types of bikes, then take a look at Holy Spokes! It will help you figure out what kind of bike is right for you depending on how and where you plan to ride.

Is your bike ready to ride? If not, Complete Bike Maintenance might be of some assistance. From routine maintenance to a complete overhaul, this book can help you with all of your bike maintenance needs.

After a long ride, you can sit back and relax with Biker Girl. One day as Aki is cleaning out her garage, she brushes up against a magical bike that turns her into a mega-cool, bike-riding superhero!

Enjoy as much time as you can this summer getting out and riding your bike, but don't forget to be safe! If you need a refresher on proper bike safety, join us for a Bike Safety Workshop hosted by the Chicago Bicycle Ambassadors on Saturday, May 16 at the Chinatown Branch.
