The #MyBikeTakesMe Instagram Contest & Other Items

As many of you know, May is National Bike Month. National Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride— bike to work or school; to save money or time; to preserve your health or the environment; to explore your community or get to your destination.
In celebration of National Bike Month, People for Bikes has teamed up with sustainable outdoor apparel company Nau (@nauclothing) to give away the ultimate commuter kit— a Tern Joe C21 foldable cruiser and $250 of Nau apparel. To enter, hit the road and tag your Instagram photos—from urban landscapes to alpine vistas – with #MyBikeTakesMe to show fellow cyclists where you go.

We've recently embarked upon a crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo. The goal is to raise enough funds so that we can build out a technology platform to implement our corporate cycling programs worldwide. Please pop over to our Indiegogo campaign and check it out. We've included some really cool perks for your support.

The Giro d'Italia and Tour of California (TOC) are in full swing this week. NBC Sports is broadcasting the TOC and BEIN TV has live broadcasts of the Giro. If you don't get them, pop over to the Cycling CEO site and follow them via the live, online stream links.
I participated in the L'Etape du California up Mt. Palomar, which was the identical route used by the pros for stage 1 of the TOC. It is a great route but one that when hot like it was for the L'Etape and the TOC, the heat just saps your energy.
Mt. Palomar is a great ride, one that I would highly recommend you ride if you get the opportunity.

Last, but certainly not least, is the announcement of a really cool luxury cycling tour being put on by my friend, Dominick Cerisano, owner of Exclusive Italian Tours. The event immediately precedes the 2013 World Championships in Tuscany, on September 24-30 in Florence Italy.
Enjoy riding an average of 75 miles/day in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, concluding with a ride on the Worlds course and special viewing of the world championships. This is going to be an epic event!

As always, thank you for your support. Please do share this with your friends, colleagues, etc. And, if you think I can help you in any way, please don't be shy!

Have a great week and safe cycling.
