#DamienTalks 36 – Celebrating Bike Month with Tony Molina of the Fresno Bike Coalition

It’s Bike Month! Welcome to Bike Month!

#DamienTalks

Today, #DamienTalks with Tony Molina with the Fresno County Bicycle Coalition to kick off our Bike Month coverage. Fresno has a full complement of Bike Month events, some of which we talk about in our conversation and others we list below. To find out more, visit the two bicycle advocacy groups in Fresno’s webpages: Fresno County Bicycle Coalition and I Bike Fresno.

As excited as we are by Bike Month in the Central Valley, we’re hoping that their example will inspire advocates in other mid-size and small cities to program Bike Month events in their own communities. I started programming a Bike to School Day at my son’s school (which will be on May 16 if anyone is reading this that lives within a couple of blocks of my place). If you want to read a quick story on how we planned the first Bike to School event at my son’s school, click here.

But as we said, there are lots of great events in Greater Fresno this month. Here is a partial list for anyone interested in learning more:

Today, Clovis Bike Month Presentation

May 4, Mall to Mall

May 18, Clovis-Fresno Ride of Silence

May 20, Bike to Work Day

Streetsblog California will check back in at the end of the month to see how Bike to Work Day goes. In the meantime, we’ll have a full month of Bike Month podcasts here at #DamienTalks.
