Celebrate National Bike Month with Trailnet!

May is National Bike Month, promoted by the League of American Bicyclists and celebrated in communities from coast to coast. Established in 1956, National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling — and encourage more folks to give biking a try.

In celebration of biking as transportation, as recreation, and as essential to our everyday lives, Trailnet and Metro Transit are hosting events to promote alternative transportation all month long!

This is a free event, but please RSVP!

In honor of May, National Bike Month, we are proud to bring you a free screening of Bike Vessel, a documentary directed by Eric D. Seals.

In Bike Vessel (2023), Seals delves into health inequalities within the Black community, focusing on the journey of his father, Donnie Seals Sr. After enduring three open-heart surgeries that nearly claimed his life, Donnie Seals Sr. experiences a remarkable turnaround in his health nearly two decades later, attributed to his newfound passion for bicycling. 

The screening will start at 6 pm, followed by a Q & A panel with the subject of the film Donnie Sr., Christe Holland, Harlan Hodge, and Trailnet Board member Margie Oliver. 

BONUS: Attendees will receive a discount code to ride with Donnie at Trailnet’s Bridge Birthday Bash on Saturday, May 18!

May Membership Drive

It’s Trailnet’s 2024 May Membership Drive–do you know where your bike is? 

Now that spring is (finally) here, it’s time to get back in the saddle. Have you renewed your Trailnet membership yet?

You already know that Trailnet is the only nonprofit in the region that provides the thrill of riding and can also persuade St. Louis legislators to make around-town trips safe for all. Whether you crave the adrenaline rush of Wildwood’s hills or opt for a more relaxed ride alongside history buffs exploring local sights, your membership powers these adventures for all riders in the region.

Drive the Change: Take the Buckle Up Phone Down Pledge

Trailnet and General Motors are inviting you to Drive the Change by pledging to put your phone down and buckle up every time you drive. 

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month, and it’s a perfect opportunity for you to be a part of a changing culture around driving safety. You know that distracted driving is dangerous. Now, it’s also illegal thanks to the new Missouri Hands Free Law. By committing to driving distraction-free, you’re not just following the law — you’re actively contributing to a safer, more caring community.
