2021 Bike Month Events


Bike Bakersfield, Kern Council of Governments and Kern County Public Works along with our coalition of active transportation partners, are gearing up for
Kern County Bike Month 2021!
Each May, cycling coalitions and clubs celebrate biking and active transportation in all its forms — bicycles, trikes, push bikes, e-bikes, scooters, and especially pedestrians! Please join us to take advantage of the great weather and cycling opportunities we are lucky to have in our own backyards.
You are invited to join us in celebrating what biking in Kern County is all about. We are looking for sponsorships for both specific events and the entire Bike Month! Bike Month sponsorships go towards reserving facilities for events, reserving or providing food or refreshments, and providing participation incentives and prizes that also support local businesses.
