May is National Bike Month!

Whether you are a confident everyday cyclist, a weekend warrior, or someone who has not ridden a bike in years, Bike Tallahassee encourages you to participate.

Bike Route Map

The Bike Tallahassee interactive Bicycle Route Map identifies the bike route network, trails and streets with bicycle facilities, and comfort ratings for different streets in our community.

Bike to School Day

May 4 is National Bike to School Day. Bike Tallahassee encourages families to participate by biking or walking to school. For families who live too far to walk or bicycle, families with limited routes for walking and bicycling, bus riders, and children with disabilities, identifying a designated starting point other than home and biking or walking from there is a good option for participating. Walking or biking at school may also be a good option.

Protected Bike Lane Week

May 9– 13 is National Protected Bike Lane Week. Celebrate by going for a ride in Tallahassee’s new Downtown-University Protected Bike Lane Network.

Bike to Work Week

May 16-20 is National Bike to Work Week, with May 20 being Bike to Work Day. If you are not confident to bike to work, create your own celebration by making it Bike Anywhere Day. Try biking to a coffee shop, the grocery store, a friend’s house, a local park, or anywhere else you want to go.

Downtown-University Protected Bicycle Lane Network

Phase 1 Completed

Phase 1 of the Downtown-University Protected Bicycle Lane network is currently under construction. With the repaving of West Pensacola Street between Macomb Street and Duval Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard between All Saints Street and College Avenue, Tallahassee is installing the community’s first protected bike lanes and other bicycling improvements to create a network of bicycle facilities to connect Downtown, Cascade Park, Florida State University (FSU), Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU), and the Stadium Trail.
