If you’ve been following WalkBike Frankfort and Folkbike ReCyclery news lately, you are already aware that May is National Bike Month and we’ve been doing it up right. We kicked things off on Derby Day with jockeys riding for 28 local businesses in the Pedal for the Posies. Then, we headed over to Second Street School in support of National Bike to School Day where some 55 students rode their bikes to school and we fitted over 30 kids with helmets.
This is an exciting time for WalkBike as we are also kicking off our official membership drive that will last from now until the end of 2014.
