For this year’s Flagstaff Bike Month, throughout May of 2022, we are happy to bring back some of our signature events since COVID has waned!
We have assembled some fun opportunities to encourage you to get out to ride throughout May!
Unlike previous Bike to Work and School Weeks, Flagstaff Bike Month is for all kinds of cycling. Whether you are riding to work or school, or mountain biking or riding at the bike park, you can participate.
Check out these ways you can ride and reap the rewards:
May 1-31 – Flagstaff Bike Month!
- Biking Challenge! Log all of your riding in the Biking Challenge and win amazing raffle prizes for FREE!
- Throughout May, log every day that you ride. Mountain bike rides, road rides, commutes, school trips, bike park shreds, it only takes a minute, and each time you enter you’ll gain an additional chance to win one of the fabulous raffle prizes donated by local businesses. Raffles will be held at the end of each week, with the biggest prizes being awarded at the end of the last week.
- Silent Auction – We’ll be silent-auctioning some custom bags made from previous Bike to Work and School Week banners to raise funds to help us offset the expenses of this year’s Flagstaff Bike Month. We’ll make the bidding site live on May 1st and close bidding on May 31st .
- Advocacy Award – We will be awarding a brick at Heritage Square to an individual who has contributed greatly to cycling in the Flagstaff area. Stay tuned for an announcement about this worthy recipient.
