Bike Month is right around the corner in May. The Burbank Transportation Management
Organization (BTMO) and partners are kicking off the festivities by hosting “Bike, Walk, Breathe: A
Wellness Event.” The virtual event will be on Thursday, May 6, 2021, from 10:00-11:00 am via Zoom.

While so many have been stuck at computer screens as they telework and others have felt trapped behind the wheel on their essential commutes, this fun and engaging event will offer strategies, resources, and community support to stay active and practice wellness through biking and walking.

Burbank celebrates Bike Month annually, and this year’s celebration will take a holistic approach to encourage Burbank residents and workers of all ages and abilities to help clean our air by taking a ride or stroll throughout the month of May. Whether you are a veteran of Burbank’s bike lanes or you
consider yourself a biking beginner, “Bike, Walk, Breathe: A Wellness Event” will provide all the tips and tricks you need to get out and about during the course of Bike Month and beyond.

This year, the BTMO will host speakers from Los Angeles Metro, Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition,
LifeStart, Fleet Feet, and Go Green Bicycles, just to name a few. An at-home workout is also scheduled
during the event as well as the opportunity to win several prizes.
“I can’t imagine a more salient time to promote mental and physical wellness through walking
and biking,” said Michael Walbrecht, BTMO Clean Air Month Committee Chair, and Vice President,
Public Affairs for Warner Bros. “Whether you do it for personal health, the health of our
community, or the health of our planet, hopping on a bike or going for a walk can make a huge
