Bike Tech, Cedar Falls
With more than 100 miles of paved, soft and water trails, Cedar Falls prides itself on being a bicycle-friendly community and supporting those who enjoy this activity. Every year, the Cedar Falls Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee plans activities in May, which is designated as National Bike Month.
National Bike Month is sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists and is celebrated in communities from coast to coast. Established in 1956, it showcases the many benefits of bicycling and encourages more folks to try it.
Throughout May, activities are planned to promote bicycling in the Cedar Valley and to promote good health for you and the environment, encourage sustainability and economic savings, as well as build a stronger community.
