Background Discussion
Since 1956, May has been recognized as National Bike Month. The League of American Bicyclists has sponsored the celebration to advance a movement to build a Bicycle Friendly America for everyone.
This year, after receiving a grant to install bike repair kiosks in public spaces, the County has decided to join the “League” to promote educating the public on bike safety.

Staff has prepared the attached Proclamation to acknowledge National Bike Month in Manatee County.

Deidra Greene-Larkins, staff, and partners will be accepting the proclamation on behalf of cyclists, bike clubs, and local bike shops in Manatee County.
