May is National Bike Month. To celebrate, the City of Carbondale is teaming up with several area businesses and organizations to host a variety of events. The goal is to promote the many benefits of bicycling throughout the community.
Activities include group bike rides, safety check, trail build and more. Bike Month festivities will wrap up on May 31 with the City’s Annual Bicycle Luncheon at Turley Park. A complete schedule of events is available on the City's website or Facebook page.
Carbondale Bike Maps are available online and at City Hall. The fold-up map features bike routes, paths, trails and other amenities for bicyclists in Carbondale.
