Bike Month

Get into Gear for Bike Month with Tri-State Trails and Partners

Tuesday, April 16, 2024 by Pat LaFleur

While spring conditions have been with us for several weeks now, May always marks the official beginning of bike season with National Bike Month and National Bike-to-Work (or anywhere!) Day. Like in years past, Tri-State Trails has several events planned for cycling enthusiasts of all interests and skill levels to celebrate all things bike!

Beer for Humans feat. Tri-State Trails

Wednesday, May 8, 5:00-8:00 pm
Rhinegeist Brewery, 1910 Elm Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202

Cheers to trails! Back by popular demand, Tri-State Trails once again will be one of Rhinegeist’s featured nonprofits for Beer for Humans during National Bike Month. Join us from 5:00-8:00 pm on Wednesday, May 8, to connect with people-powered enthusiasts, create bike-themed artwork, and a chance to win fabulous door prizes—be there at 6:30 for a group photo!

You can support Tri-State Trails at Rhinegeist all month long. Every Wednesday in May, stop by Beer for Humans at the brewery from 5:00-8:00 pm to get a voting token with the purchase of any beer. Vote for Tri-State Trails with your token so we can claim the distinction of winning Beer for Humans that month and earn a $1,000 donation! Last year we brought in more votes than any other nonprofit organization featured that month – help us do it again this year!
