If you have groups on the road on September 30, it's time to start limbering up! Thousands of people throughout the world will ride through parks and public lands during the second annual Bike Your Park Day on September 30, 2017.
Biking is a great way to tour national and state parks, monuments, historic sites, recreation areas, wildlife refuges and parkways. Whether it's by paved road, concrete path or dirt trail, Bike Your Park Day is the perfect opportunity to discover bicycling opportunities in your destinations. Celebrated on the same day as National Public Lands Day, many parks will offer free entrance and organize special activities and service projects.
Choose a park, map a route and register your ride online at adventurecycling.org. Your groups could also tag along on a planned ride. The interactive online map pins registered routes, and you can contact organizers of rides marked "public" for more information.
