Every May Massachusetts residents come together to celebrate human-powered, two-wheeled transportation. From Cape Cod to the Berkshires participants organize events like film screenings, bike breakfasts, festivals and more to encourage new riders and raise awareness about bicycle transportation.
It is fitting that Massachusetts is the only state in the nation with a truly statewide bike week, given our long history of biking. From Worcester’s bike racing champion Major Taylor to the world-famous Springfield Bicycle Club Tournament, the love of biking has deep roots.
