Throughout history, bikes have brought a sense of independence to riders of all kinds. Bikes enable freedom of movement, the ability to find new adventures, and help us find some #bikejoy along the way. This July, we want to hear about how you’ve found independence through bicycling.

How to Participate:

  • Take a bike ride & snap a photo during your ride
  • Share your story of how your bicycle brings you independence with us! Either tag @MassBike in your biking independence story on social media or email your story & photo to bikeinfo@massbike.org
  • When you share your story, tag us @Junction TMO on Twitter or Instagram for the chance to win a $25 gift card to your local bike shop

Everyone who participates in our Biking Independence challenge will be entered to win a bike repair kit prize pack. Thanks to our friends at Sadie's Bikes in Turner's Falls, Valley Bike & Ski Werks in Hadley, and Yesteryear Cyclery in New Bedford.

Make sure you're following MassBike on FacebookInstagram, & Twitter so you can tag us in your biking independence photo. You only need to tag us on one platform to be entered into the challenge & we will comment/respond to your post to verify your entry. If your account is private, we won't be able to see your post. Those who email their photo & biking independence story to bikeinfo@massbike.org will be given the option to be featured on the Bay State Bike Month Website.
