squareMay is National Bike Month!   Informational page, no registration is required.

The City of Milford is celebrating National Bike Month in May with Bike Milford 2023. Getting out on a bike is a great way to tour our beautiful city while having fun and getting exercise. Milford is home to over 17 miles of bikeable shoreline, the perfect scenic area for bicyclists. This is great for casual rides with the family, exercising, or for a quick commute. There are various events planned throughout the month for all ages!


Bike Milford Passport Program - May 1st-May 31st
Take part in the Bike Milford Passport Program, which runs ALL MONTH, to tour our beautiful city while visiting some of our awesome local businesses! We encourage people to bike to each of the businesses and get their passport stamped. You can stop by however many businesses you would like, and each stamp gives you one entry into the raffle at the end of the month - you can earn up to 10 entries!
