This May, to celebrate bike month, we're inviting you to Ride It Out with us all month long!
WHILE OUR DAY-TO-DAY LIVES ARE MUCH DIFFERENT THIS SPRING THAN IN YEARS PAST, THANKS TO BIKES, ADVENTURE IS WAITING RIGHT OUT YOUR FRONT DOOR.
The last few months have been difficult for everyone, but they’ve also shown us the power of the bicycle during times of crisis. People across the nation are turning to their bikes as an alternative method of transportation, a healthy break, both physically and mentally, from increased time indoors and as a great way to keep the whole family active while everyone is together. While we may be more isolated than we'd like, but this spring, bikes are helping us all Ride It Out together.
Throughout the month of May, we’ll be sharing stories from riders just like you about the significant role bikes play in our daily lives and how you can take full advantage of all the wonderful ways bikes bring us a sense of joy and adventure, even during challenging times. We’ll hear from Ride Spot Ambassadors about what biking means to them, highlight their rides and experiences on two wheels, and share blogs about how you can get out on your bike safely and #RideItOut with us.
We created the Ride Spot Ambassador program to help share the experiences of riders just like you. We will highlight a few of our ambassadors and what biking means to them.
"The bike is everything to me. It's how I get to work, the store—it's how I’ve met my closest friends. It's the tool for mental, physical, and emotional health. When I feel badly, I go for a ride. When I feel amazing, I go for a ride. The bike has changed my life in so many ways. I want more people on bikes!!!!"
"Enamored by travel and adventure, I love the fact that biking can take you places cars will never see! Sometimes the voyage of discovery simply lies in a new perspective, and biking is one of my favorite ways to find that."
"Cycling means the world to me. It’s a passion that keeps me healthy, both physically and emotionally. It’s a lifestyle full of health, wellness, happiness, and outdoor freedom (not to mention community and support for business and other riders). No other passion of mine turns soreness and hundreds of miles into excitement, joy and just plain fun."

"Bike riding means so many different things to me but I will try to narrow it down to 3 F's: Friendship. Fun. Freedom. To me, cycling is a lot like life. The journey is what matters. The destination will work itself out."
Whether it’s exploring your neighborhood by bike, how to ride safely during COVID-19, or tips for first-time riders or those who might be dusting off their bike seat for the first time in a while, we’ve got you covered.
While we’re working from home, PeopleForBikes staff members have found a multitude of ways to stay mentally and physically active. Despite all of the day-to-day changes we’ve experienced, one thing hasn’t changed much: we still love riding our bikes.
Despite the many new regulations dictating our daily lives, bike riding — safely — isn’t canceled. A lot of Americans are getting on their bikes right now, many of them new to cycling or getting back in the saddle for the first time in years
Just because we’re riding alone doesn’t mean we can’t share our adventures. Thanks to Ride Spot, sharing those experiences has never been easier. Whether it’s a ride around your neighborhood or an all-day gravel epic, we want you to share your fun times on two wheels. Here’s a few of our favorite Ride Stories.
Riding along the rim is unique and words will never be able to describe it. The road from the South East gate to the Grand Canyon village is one of the most beautiful rides you will ever do in Arizona.
60 miles | Road
What a beautiful trail ride! This trail is well-kept, and well-designed -- the trail takes you through a wooded oasis along Walnut Creek and never directly intersects any roads, highways or railroads.
6.6 miles | Bike path
A fun little dirt ride straight from my door to Standley Lake Regional park via the Rocky Mountain Greenway meandering next to one of the many farming canals found in Arvada.
17 miles | Gravel
This is another go-to-ride that takes you through the very small but resilient town of Woodland Utah.
21 miles miles | Road
