May is Bike Month in Norfolk

Now in its ninth year, Norfolk Bike Month is a community celebration of biking and this year is the first year the City of Norfolk has 31 days of events. Throughout the month of May, cyclists of all ages and abilities are invited to a variety of rides and bike-related events in Norfolk.

No bike? No problem! With the city’s bikeshare program, it’s never been easier to pick up the Pace. Cyclists can join social rides, bike-in to a movie, and more. It’s even easier to find your way around downtown with new signs for the Elizabeth River Trail. With 31 miles of bicycle lanes and paths all over Norfolk, there’s never been a better time to ride.

A sample of community events are planned throughout May, such as:

The City of Norfolk is dedicated to providing safe, alternative modes of transportation. As one of the most multi-modal cities in the region, safe and healthy streets are a priority, so residents are encouraged to take a short survey to provide feedback on biking throughout the Mermaid city.
