Bike to Work events can differ substantially based on the size of the organization, the estimated number of participants, and the history of bike commuting in the area. This timeline is meant as a general indication of when actions should be taken in relation to the proposed event date. While many Bike to Work events occur in May during Bike to Work week, this calendar facilitates planning Bike to Work events at any time of year. For larger cities, adding two to three months of time to steps one through five is advisable to ensure that there is enough time to coordinate across a larger area and across a larger pool of cyclists.
