Get ready to pedal: May is National Bike Month and May 14th-22nd is Bay State Bike Week! All next week, events will be happening across Massachusetts to promote the social, environmental, and health benefits of riding a bike.

Before you head out on the road, remember, “safety first!” Always wear a helmet while riding a bike and follow the rules of the road. For a list of Bike Safety Tips from the City of Boston, go to http://www.cityofboston.gov/bikes/bikesafety/

Need a bike? Our Dorchester community health centers offer Subsidized Hubway Memberships for low-income Boston residents. Hubway is a bike-sharing service that allows users to rent bikes from stations located across Boston. Annual memberships range from $5-$50 based on income level and a free helmet is included. Visit Geiger Gibson Community Health Center on Thursdays from 1:00PM-3:00PM or Neponset Health Center on Fridays from 9:00AM-11:00AM to apply for a membership!

You can also apply for a membership directly through Boston Bikes.
