May is Bike Month. #DecideToRide with us this month and shift the way we think about moving around our cities. Give your car the day off and hop on a bike, a scooter, a skateboard, or roller blades... whatever moves you. All you have to do is ride for one day. That day just might inspire you to ride for one more.Make The Pledge

Why Decide To Ride?
When you #DecideToRide, you can have a profound impact on the environment, create a deeper connection to yourself, and experience more of the city around you.
Even if your commute is short, choosing to ride over taking your car can have a huge environmental impact. When you #DecideToRide instead of taking your car, you reduce your carbon emissions by 94% (per km).
When you #DecideToRide, you're taking a more active and intentional form of transportation. Bike commuters report lower stress and greater feelings of freedom and relaxation than car commuters.
When you see the world from behind your handlebars, you experience your community from a different perspective. When you #DecideToRide, you can take new streets, turn new corners, and connect with others on a new level.
