National Bike Month always sneaks up on me.

It's the second day of bike month (May) and while you may have missed out on some of the inaugural spirit there's still lots and lots of area events coming up. 

How to keep up with it? Well turn to the de facto source of Charleston bike news: (@BikeCharleston on Twitter.)

Their blog is a good way to keep up with the pulse of local bike news and they maintain a great bike event calendar (pasted below.)

Some of the month's highlights are Bike-to-Work day on May 14the Ride of Silence from 11 p.m. May 19 to 1 a.m. May 20, and Mount Pleasant's new bike-to-picnic series.

The weather's fine, so what are you waiting for? Get out and peddle.
