May is Utah Bike Month and, as the theme indicates, it is packed with events to encourage and celebrate alternate means of transportation. One of the highlighted events of the month is the Mayor’s Bike to Work day on May 13th featuring a casual ride with the county and city mayors. SLCBAC will be an active participant in this event, and riders might even take advantage of refreshments and awesome giveaways during the ride. A complete listing of May’s events can be found on the Cycling Utah event calendar. As advisors to county mayor Ben McAdams, SLCBAC is always looking to engage the community and receive advice and input concerning how we can improve our streets and resources for bicycles and walking. Currently, SLCBAC has several vacant positions to fill. Interested citizens can apply for a position by visiting our revamped website at www.bicycle.slco.org and click on the “Get Involved” link!
