Across the country, many cities and states dedicate the month of May to bikes, and Indiana is no different. Festivities will begin immediately on May 1st when BGI hosts its Bike Month Kick-Off Event at its 82nd Street store. Some of Indianapolis’ most recognized bicycle groups and advocates will be present for an evening filled with information, connections, and entertainment. The event is free, food and beverages will be provided, and lasts from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Bike Month in Indiana picks up steam on Saturday, May 11th when IndyCog will host its annual “2 Wheels 1 City” event downtown at the City Market from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. This event is a rare chance for all levels of cyclists to come together at one spot for food, entertainment, conversation, and true celebration in honor of the City of Indianapolis embracing and welcoming cyclists by providing numerous trails, paths, and events. Caress Law Group’s Indiana Bicycle Lawyers will be present at this event, and we will host the bicycle parking table. IndyCog offers secured parking for all those who travel to 2 Wheels 1 City by way of bicycle, and we are proud to support IndyCog with this aspect of the event. Also occurring at the same time as 2 Wheel 1 City will be the Indianapolis Cultural Trail’s kick-off event “Get Down On It!” The streets of downtown Indianapolis are sure to be vibrant and full of cyclists on May 11th!
Our Indianapolis bicycle accident lawyers also encourage all Hoosiers to participate in Bike to Work Day on May 17th. This is a great way to switch up the pace of your usual routine by taking a new route to work using your bike. If you work downtown, IndyCog will again offer secure parking and entertainment at the City Market and the Bike Hub. As you can see, there are plenty of bicycle-centered events taking place in central Indiana during May, so make sure you celebrate and enjoy the time with your friends and family.
Any cyclists aiming to look a little slicker at any of these bike events are encouraged to request a free Indiana flag sticker or patch for the Indiana Bicycle Lawyers of Caress Law Group. We will also be handing these out at the 2 Wheels 1 City event at our bicycle parking table, so be sure to tell your friends.
Enjoy the month of May – Indiana Bike Month!
