Go By Bike Week began today, Monday, with a breakfast in Ashland. Did you miss it? Luckily, if you did, they’re more events planned throughout the week. Bike Week is a part of the Rogue Valley Transportation District’s (RVTD) celebratation of National Bike Month.

Log your rides at drivelessconnect.com and be automatically entered to win prizes, such as LED bike lights and gift cards to Kaleidoscope Pizza, Dutch Bros coffee and more.

Biking isn’t just for weekends, says Eden Gomez of RVTD, it’s also a healthy and clean way of getting around town. “We’re hoping to get out the word of biking as a transportation option and to celebrate the biking community,” said Gomez.
