Mayor Collins Signs Proclamation Declaring May as Bike Month
Published on May 03, 2021
CHEYENNE – On Monday morning, Mayor Patrick Collins signed a proclamation in his office to declare May as Bike Month.
Throughout the month of May, Cheyenne residents and visitors are encouraged to experience the joys of bicycling through educational programs, races, community events, or by simply getting out and going for a ride. Cheyenne and Laramie County’s road and trail systems attract bicyclists each year, providing economic health, transportation, tourism, and scenic beauty.
Creating a bicycle-friendly community has been shown to improve health, wellbeing, and quality of life while reducing pollution, road congestion, and wear and tear on our roads. The proclamation stresses the importance of public awareness of bicycle operations and safety to reduce collisions, injuries, and fatalities.
One way to celebrate Bike Month is to take a ride on our terrific Cheyenne Greenway system! This year, the Greater Cheyenne Greenway is celebrating its 30th anniversary. As we celebrate the 30th anniversary, we want to hear from you! We encourage the public to submit Greenway pictures, videos, and stories on social media using the hashtag #Greenway30. You can also send pictures, videos, and stories using our online form: https://bit.ly/3rsJp9K. Submitted items may be publicized by the City on their website, social media, or other print material.
