Bike for Life Moscow

This is our ninth year celebrating National Bike Month in Moscow, Idaho.  We call ourselves Bike for Life since biking is a great way to travel all year long and at every stage of life, not just in May.

See the contact page for more information about volunteering to help with events and planning.
