Bike Walk Macon celebrates Macon Bike Walk Month each year in May by hosting several free events that celebrate biking and walking, but this year will be different than past years as we continue following the guidelines of health experts in helping prevent the spread of COVID-19. To help celebrate in a different way, we have organized a combination of virtual, small group gatherings and solo riding and walking events and activities to ensure that community members can still have a fun and impactful Bike Walk Month. Some events will take place on specific days, and some allow you to participate at your own leisure.
