Welcome to Bike Modesto Month! Bike Modesto Month celebrates bicycling as an essential mode of transportation. Join people across the Modesto area and ride your bike all during the month of May! 

Preparing for Your Ride

  • Give your bike a tune-up. Check the tire air pressure and make sure the other components such as brakes, handlebars, chain, and seat are properly adjusted and secured.
  • Check your gear. Make sure your helmet fits properly. Add front and rear lights to your bike if you plan to ride in the dark. Add a face mask to your biker’s wardrobe.
  • Remember the rules of the road by riding in the direction of traffic and obeying stop signs and lights.
  • Enjoy the fresh air and remember to greet others from a safe distance (at least 6 feet).
  • Keep an eye out for walkers and joggers and remember who has the right of way on sidewalks and bike paths (they do).
  • Find a good place to tuck mobile devices when riding. Do not text/talk while riding.

Play Bingo

After you've logged some miles on your bike, log on to Dibs for Bike Bingo and a chance to win prizes. Also, be sure to join fellow cycling enthusiasts on May 20 for Bike to Work Day.
