May is National Bicycle Safety Month, and last Thursday the East Hampton Town Board passed a resolution declaring it Bike Safety Month in the town.

The bicycle “is a healthy, convenient, financially and environmentally sound form of transportation,” according to the resolution, “and an excellent tool for recreation and enjoyment” of the town’s “scenic beauty, local attractions, and friendly neighborhoods.” Creating a bicycle-friendly community “has been shown to improve citizens’ health, well-being, quality of life,” while “reducing pollution, congestion, and wear and tear on our streets and roads.”

The board “encourages all residents to review the laws and regulations governing bicycle safety and to use a bicycle for transportation and recreation.” Safety information is to be posted on the town’s website and social media platforms.
