Although the week differs as you travel around the United States, the idea of Bike Safety Week stays the same. You can contact your local municipal administrators for more specific information regarding Bike Safety week.
Bike Safety Month
According to the Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, May is officially Bike Safety Month. There are many events you can plan in your area free of charge.
Bike to Work
This is a good way for cyclists to get to know their fellow cyclists better by riding together to work. Usually the riders will pick a mutual point of origin and a mutual point of destination, then continue on their way from there.
Many programs exist that can help remind cyclists of the importance of helmets. This is also a good reminder to children who may not have had the same kinds of experiences.
With some good publicity work you can easily organize a moderate turnout for a talk about traffic safety with other cyclists.
League of American Bicyclists
