National Bike Month

Baseline Bicycles is back! 

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation to Europe (see preceding post).  We took a ton of pictures, but will just share one with you here, a picture of a cool fixie we saw in Barcelona.
We made it back just in time to celebrate the last day of National Bike Month. We hope that everyone will join us in taking advantage of this beautiful time of year and get on your bikes and ride. (Take a friend.)

One bit of trivia is that National Bike Month has been celebrated since 1956. Although the times have changed the joy and benefits from riding your bicycle remain the same. Opie knew it, Elvis knew it, and so do we.

National Bike Month is Sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists. From their website we learn more about the organization. Their Beliefs, their Vision and their Mission are shown below in red.

Bicycling brings people together.
When more people ride bikes:
     Life is better for everyone; 
     Communities are safer, stronger and better connected; 
     Our nation is healthier, economically stronger, environmentally cleaner and
     more energy independent.
is a nation where everyone recognizes and enjoys the many benefits and opportunities of bicycling.
is to lead the movement to create a Bicycle Friendly America for everyone. As leaders, our commitment is to listen and learn, define standards and share best practices to engage diverse communities and build a powerful, unified voice for change.

We couldn't agree more. It is an organization that everyone who loves bicycling should support. Now,
For those of you who ordered your bikes in May, your bikes have already shipped!
If you were waiting for us to return before placing your order do so now, so that you will have your bike to enjoy for the entire summer. You'll never look better than when you are seen riding one of our fixies.
