Since 1956, Americans have celebrated National Bike Month in May. Sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists, the month-long event was established to showcase the advantages of biking. To encourage the local community to ride their bicycles more often, Eki Cyclery, a family-owned bike shop in Honolulu, HI, has compiled a list of upcoming bicycling events happening on Oahu.
