It's a sad day everyone. It is the last day of Bike Month. Which means it's the last day of the Million Mile Challenge.
But don't be too sad cause there are still chances to win MORE PRIZES!!! We are giving everyone until NOON ON JUNE 5TH to get your May miles logged. Then we will draw for the MMC Grand Prizes which include: a new Trek Allant dontated by Rubber Soul Bicycles, an adventure down the Kings River with Kings River Expeditions, a tune up from Clovis Bicycle Company, a custom created LEGO Bike Monster Sculpture created by Brick Laboratory and MUCH MORE! (Check out the image after the jump for all the 2013 MMC Grand Prizes!)
Every day that you logged miles in May is an entry into the Grand Prize Drawings so it pays to make sure all your miles are entered! So if you rode every day that is 31 entries!
Also, if you could help us out...if you have a friend who you know didn't log at all or they fell behind on logging their miles give them a friendly nudge for us and get them to enter those lost miles!
See you in the bike lanes...except on Fruit. ;)
Bike lanes. We love ‘em. Looks like there is a bike lane project on the City Council consent calendar for Thursday, May 23rd. The proposed bike lane would convert Fruit Avenue to a complete street between Shaw and Herndon. That means turning the four lanes into three lanes and adding bike lanes on both sides of the street. BUT there are some rumblings that this item will not be approved. Since there appears to be some concern that the project may be voted down, we need your help.
We need you to get in touch with your Council member and let them know you are in favor of the Fruit Avenue bike lane project. This road diet has only been proposed because it meets all the condition for such a project without adversely affecting car traffic. This project would be another step towards providing exceptional access to every resident of this city. Cars, bikes, and pedestrians alike.

Make your voice heard and make a difference today!
It's the first day of Free Bike Valet at Clovis Farmers Market!
Ride to the Clovis Farmers Market and I Bike Fresno will park & watch your bicycle for FREE. Ditch the car and log some miles in the Million Mile Challenge. It is the perfect excuse to ride your bike. We are there from 5:30-9 and will be located on Pollasky, near 3rd street.
Mall to Mall Ride
Wednesday, May 8 2013
Despite a cloudy start, I Bike Fresno was happy to participate in the Fresno County Bicycle Coalition 12th Annual Mall to Mall Ride this morning.
Our own Byron Watkins joined a team of 120 riders that biked from Manchester Mall to Fulton Mall with their own bike escorts from our friends at the Fresno Police Department.
Riders met at Manchester Mall and rode a total of five miles to Fulton Mall where refreshments were served by Fresno Brewing Co.
It was fantastic to see everyone join in on this rainy morning and we were excited to see so many of our friends in the biking community, and some new ones, come together. After the break, there was an informal ride back to Manchester Mall and another ride that toured the Mural District.
Thanks again to everyone that came out, and we hope to see you next time! Until then, keep on logging those miles here on ibikefresno.org and remember that Biking = Joy.
If you haven't registered yet you can do so by clicking the REGISTER link in the top right hand corner of the page. We start giving out prizes tomorrow for the 31 Days of Prizes!
We have tons of other great events to ride in so let's make this the best Bike Month ever!
Help us by encouraging your friends to join. The more riders we have the better chance we have of hitting our goal. Let's show other cities what Fresno can do!
See you in the bike lanes!
Here we are in late April, staring down the maw of the month of May. Now May may mean a much maligned maladjusted allergy season to some folks, but at I Bike Fresno it means "AAAAAHHHHH!!! IT'S HAPPENED AGAIN! MAY IS BIKE MONTH! AGAIN! AAAAHHHHH!!!"
That's right, it's National Bike Month and that means I Bike Fresno is up and riding. We've got tons of stuff to do this May including the Million Mile Challenge, 31 Days of Prizes AND the Kaiser Permanente Bike to Work Day Corporate Challenge.
Head on over to the Bike Month page for all our great bike events in May and tell your friends about ibikefresno.org. If we're going to make our goal of riding a collective MILLION MILES in the month of May, we're going to need everyone pedaling together.
So dust off that bike, head out on the bike paths and lanes and remember what we've been telling you for years..."Biking = Joy."
This is our poster for Bike Month. Help us get the word out and download a PDF version to print and post it at your office,
retail location or just randomly around town.

The time has finally come! The Million Mile Challenge Dashboard has been reset. Login or register and set your goal for May, create your MMC team and then head over to bike2workfresno.org and register your company for the Kaiser Permanente Bike To Work Corporate Challenge. Official mile logging begins on May 1st. So spread the word and bring your friends!
With spring upon us here in Fresno comes new outdoor events every weekend. And that means you can count on us to be there with our free valet bike parking and supervision. Coming up this weekend are two events centered in beautiful Downtown Fresno.
Saturday, April 20th: Earth Day Fresno 2013
Held at the Fresno County Courthouse Park, you can catch us with Free Valet Bike Parking off Tulare and Van Ness. The daylong event will include live music, food vendors, speeches, sponsor booths and much, much more.
Every year Earth Day celebrations are observed by more than 1 billion people in 192 countries. The original Earth Day kicked off April 20th, 1970 and ignited the environmental movement. Saturday will be a great day to get in touch with local organizations helping out the cause.
Go to www.earthdayfresno.org for more information.
Sunday, April 21st: Mini Maker Faire at Chukchansi Park.
It’ll be the first Mini Maker Faire hosted by the Fresno Grizzlies and there will be thousands of fans coming out to see what it’s all about. If you haven’t heard, the Mini Maker Faire brings together our community’s creative and artistic talent to showcase their work. Robotics teams, wood workers, 3D printing and more will be on hand to show their cool inventions and creations. I Bike Fresno will be on the corner of Tulare and H streets parking bikes. Just keep an eye out for the sign that says Free Valet Bike Parking!
It’s going to be a beautiful weekend, so make sure to get out on that bike and see what Fresno has to offer.
