May is National Bike Month, a time to celebrate the cycling community and the positive health and environmental impacts of riding a bicycle. At Harvard, recently recognized as a Bicycle Friendly University Silver Level by the League of American Cyclists, the engagement and strength of the bike community continues to grow. Harvard is currently the highest ranked Bicycle Friendly University in New England and in all the Ivy Leagues, so this month, we're recognizing the commitment shown by our students, staff, and faculty to make Harvard a bicycle friendly, and healthy, campus.
Get out those bikes and get involved this May!
