Gather up your family, friends, bike clubs, youth groups or adventure buddies, and go on a bike overnight to your favorite campground, nearby park, public land, hotel, cabin, B & B, hostel, Warm Showers host, or a friend's backyard during National Bike Travel Weekend, June 4-6, 2017. Experience the joy of bicycle travel with thousands of other cyclists in North America on the same weekend.

Big groups, small groups, solo bike travelers — one person or 100 people — one night or two nights: it’s your choice. You’re in charge.

In September you can explore your parks and public lands by bicycle with thousands of people across the country on the same day on Bike Your Park Day, September 30, 2017.

Discover new parks or experience your favorite parks in a new way. You can make it your own experience: ride one mile or one hundred miles; go with friends, family, or join a group; bike on trails or roads. You can visit any type of public lands, whether it's a national or state park, monument, or historic site, river, seashore, recreation area, preserve, forest, wildlife refuge, or parkway.
