Connect With an Ambassador

Thank you for participating in or supporting the first-ever Bike Your Park Day. Over 11,000 people on more than 1,400 trips participated in the first-ever Bike Your Park Day. Thank YOU for making it a success! We hope you will continue to share your photos with #bikeyourpark. Save the date for Bike Your Park Day in 2017: September 30. Please enjoy reviewing the resources created for Bike Your Park Day and consider using them to explore your parks and public lands by bicycle any time of the year, not just the last Saturday in September.

Connect with a Bike Your Park Day Ambassador for bike travel advice and resources in your area. 

Bike Your Park Day Ambassadors are volunteers from across North America who can help you plan your ride. More than 150 ambassadors are available to answer your questions by email regarding local bike routes and riding in parks and public lands in their specific region.
