Celebrating Bike Month

May is National Bike Month! Portsmouth is currently a Bronze Level Bike Friendly Community according to The League of American Cyclists, and continues to implement initiatives to advance this designation and further encourage bicycling as an alternative form of transportation. Please find helpful resources, events and commuting challenges on this page.
