May 2015 was the first New Haven Bike Month.

Community members and organizations from all of New Haven's neighborhoods came together to host events ranging from Open Streets festivals, bike maintenance clinics, social rides, advanced rides, classes, and more.


1.    To promote and ramp up the incredible biking events already happening in the city.
2.    And to expand the definition of what it means to be a cyclist in New Haven.
