Hi! Guess what? It's Bike Month! Queen City Bike and dozens of sponsors, activists and cycling enthusiasts have a crazy month planned — from group rides and events to classes and free stuff at designated biker locations all over town. We've got the month-long schedule covered in our Bike Month events calendar, an update on the city's 2010 Bike Plan and a Q&A session with a guy who likes bikes so much he doesn't even have a car. Enjoy, but be safe. Those guys on our cover this week are trained tandem-bike professionals, obviously.
