Bicycle Awareness Month is May, and Bike to Work Day is on Friday, May 20. There are events that highlight bicycle awareness all over the state, here are a few that were sent to us.
In Lawrence- Homeless Shelter Event. May 21, members of the Bike Coop along with League of American Cyclist Certified Instructors, will be teaching a commuter and safety class to guests at the Lawrence Community Shelter (homeless shelter). The people who take this three-hour course will earn locks, lights, bicycle repair tools and helmets and those who don't have bikes, will earn them and those, also.
They have the bicycles, but need monetary or supply donations to help provide locks, lights, helmets and bicycle repair tools for those completing the course. Here is the sign up for donations.
