May is National Bike Month!
National Bike Month is a large part of the Bike Town Spartanburg experience! Annual events include the Spartanburg Regional Classic, Pedal with your Politician and Bike to School Day! In addition we have had classes offered on bike maintenance and bicycle commuting. Other past fun events have included a bicycle beauty pageant and ArtCycle, which invites several regional artists to construct outdoor public sculptures out of recycled bicycle parts.
