Sponsored Content : There’s a Movement in L.A.

2:13 PM PDT on May 1, 2019

The following is sponsored content from Metro Los Angeles. To see metro's original bike month flyer in pdf. form, click here. Visit the Bike the Movement webpage, here.

We are choosing to ride together, rather than drive alone. And more and more of us are trading four wheels for two. May is Bike Month and your chance to take that first step to join the movement.

Bike Month Events

Join Metro as we celebrate biking in LA throughout the month of May.

You can “get your feet wet” during Bike to Work Week (May 13 – 19) or Bike to Work Day (BTWD) on Thursday, May 16th. The National BTWD celebration is on Friday, May 17th. Once again, Metro and many other transportation agencies throughout the county traditionally mark the Thursday before with free rides.

Just bring your bike or helmet to claim your free ride on any Metro bus or rail line. At non-gated Metro rail stations, there is no need to tap, just show the Metro fare officer your bike or helmet. At Metro’s rail-gated stations, use the intercom located near the fare gates to notify an attendant who will open the ADA gates for you.

You can check out which other agencies are offering free transit rides to bicyclists at

Discover our new bike map at for an expanding list of BTWD pit stops set up throughout the county; one is likely offered on or near your route.

At these pit stops, you will find refreshments to fuel you on your ride, as well as free giveaways. Metro will be hosting our very own pit stop at Union Station in front of the Metro Bike Hub.

Visit the calendar on the website for a growing list of fun bike-related events. “Recycle Your Bike” by the City of Long Beach and “Blessing of the Bicycles” at the Good Samaritan Hospital are just a few events for you to get into the spirit.
