sloshift.org is the new home for Bike Month in San Luis Obispo County! It’s also a place where people who ride bikes can find a year-round bicycle inspired events — and submit their own! SLO Shift is run entirely by the community, for the community, with the purpose of elevating and expanding bicycle culture in our region.
We are confident that this shift will provide Bike Month enthusiasts with the opportunity to truly shape its future. Our region is extremely fortunate to have had such a dedicated group of volunteers, partners and community leaders who have made this program possible over the years. It’s allowed Bike Month to grow into what it is today: the largest community organized event in SLO County.
This May, Rideshare will continue to focus on its core mission to reduce the number of single occupant vehicles on our roadways during peak commute hours through Bike to Work and Bike to School Day activities. We will also continue to financially support Bike Month events that promote bike culture in our region outside of peak commute hours, through sponsorship funding applications available at sloshift.org. By doing this, our goal is to raise awareness and adoption of bikes as means of active transportation countywide.
For all other Bike Month calendar and sponsorship requests, visit sloshift.org.
