Bike Events

Each spring and fall, NYC DOT celebrates cycling by hosting events for Bike Month (May) and Biketober (October). Check out the calendar below to see these and other bike-friendly events hosted throughout the year.

We also publish self-guided rides to showcase our city’s growing bike network, community amenities, and featured destinations. Whether you’re going on a self-guided ride, riding through a park, or planning your commute on two wheels, brush up on safe cycling tips.
