Across the nation everyone celebrates Bike to Work Month in May...not here in Coeur d'Alene. We aren't like everyone else, so Bike to Work Week and Month will be held in June. The weather is better, plus why not stand out from the crowd!

Get out the spandex, (or not), tune up that bicycle and get out there for an exciting fun filled bicycle themed month. 

Things to Consider:

1. Don't forget your bicycle (mountain bike, cruiser, road bike, recumbent, etc).
2. Update yourself on the Idaho Bicycle Laws so you know the rules of the road.
3. Extend your stay: besides the several Bike to Work Week/Month events that are taking place there is also Car d'Lane and IRONMAN Coeur d'Alene that offer opportunities for bicyclists to ride! 
4. While downtown check out the newest taproom Unchained. It is a bicycle themed taproom that offers over 20 taps featuring micro brews and ciders and a selection of regional wines.
