This nationwide event helps to untie thousands of cyclists, new or seasoned, in a friendly campaign to celebrate biking! The Bike-In Breakfast events finish with a yummy breakfast as a team and will help you collect miles on a variety of different routes. Log miles on your own and use #IndyBIB to share your progress on social media for the chance to win prizes and compete on leaderboards. It’s not too late to sign up, and by doing so, you are promoting a healthier way of travel for both you and the environment through education, exercise, and advocacy.
