(GALVESTON, TX) May 9, 2017 – With spring in the air, an abundance of sunshine, and miles of bike paths throughout the City of Galveston, Bike Month could not have fallen on better weather for cyclists on the island. In an effort to encourage ridership during the month of May, the City’s Intermodal Transportation Committee has organized a “Bike to Work” event on May 19th and a “Bike as a Family” event on May 20th.
With expansions to the bicycle network, both planned and under construction, now is a perfect time for Galvestonians to embrace the sport. “The new additions to the bike system on the island will make cycling in Galveston even more enjoyable,” said the City’s new Director of Development Services Tim Tietjens, “As an experienced rider who has been recently introduced to the existing bike network on the island, I hope that Galvestonians can see the treasure that lies before them and take the opportunity to get out and enjoy it.”
The City’s Intermodal Transportation Committee has put together two community events to celebrate cycling on the island during Bike Month.
