May is National Bike Month


Here are some suggestions for biking this month from the League of American Bicyclists and South Windsor Walk & Wheel Ways

    In addition to being National Bike Month, May is Mental Health Month. The benefits of exercising for physical health have been promoted for decades, and it’s increasingly  recognized that physical activity benefits mental health, as well. Our well-being, physically and mentally, is in focus right now. We don’t talk often enough about the mental health benefits of biking, including reducing stress and anxiety, and improving happiness, mental focus, and sleep. You don't have to put on Lycra or bike up a mountain to get these effects. Short and regular physical activity will go a long way to a cumulative effect on your health. This May, we’re not only encouraging people to bike because it is fun, but also because it feels good and is good for you.

     

    SWW&WW Bike Racks & Bike Repair Station

    We added a bike repair station with tools, an air pump, and an E-Bike charging station at the new restroom facility in Nevers Park next to the soccer field! The facility also has a water bottle refilling station, picnic tables and a bike rack. Enjoy a snack while charging your electric bike.

    Look for our bike racks at parks, schools, libraries, businesses and popular gathering places in South Windsor.  Please note the new bike racks at Dynamic Fitness Results on Rt. 5 and at CT Valley Brewing Company on Sullivan Avenue! For information on acquiring a bike rack at your business, check out our Bicycle Rack Cost Share Program on our website: www.swwww.org or help us purchase additional bike racks for the town by making a donation to South Windsor Walk & Wheel Ways through the South Windsor Community Fund at www.swfoundation.org.
