National Bike Your Park Day

Sharing is caring!

Don’t park your bike – bike your park! On September 24, 2016, Adventure Cycling Association is holding its first-ever Bike Your Park Day with nearly 10,000 participants at parks across the country.

Here’s some more info about the event from the organizers:

Bike Your Park Day encourages people to ride to and within parks and public lands in celebration of the National Park Service (NPS) centennial, National Public Lands Day, and Adventure Cycling’s 40th anniversary. Many parks will have free entrance, and some parks will offer special activities and service projects.

“Bike Your Park Day is a great opportunity to promote healthy, active recreation in our parks while at the same time encouraging family-friendly activities during the NPS Centennial year,” said Bob Ratcliffe, NPS Program Chief of Conservation and Outdoor Recreation. “Plus it’s a much better experience seeing our parks from the seat of a bicycle than sitting in a car!”

People who want to participate in Bike Your Park Day can design their own ride — any distance, any style of bicycling, and any type of park or public land that is open to bicycles. Participants register their ride for free at BikeYourParkDay.org and an interactive map displays all of the rides taking place.

Bike Your Park Day’s interactive map of rides include many that are open for others to join. People can contact the ride organizer via the interactive website. Those who have questions about the event can contact one of the 150 Bike Your Park Day volunteer ambassadors based in 47 states. They can answer questions about bicycle safety, bike-friendly routes, and nearby parks and public lands.
