For National Bike Month, the city of Sugar Land has put together four self-guided tours of the city—and it is not too late to join.

Each week, a bike route through a different part of the city is featured, and each route comes with detailed instructions and safety tips.

National Bike Month was established in 1956 with the goal of showcasing the benefits of bicycling. On the local level, the bike tours are designed to raise awareness about biking as an alternative mode of transportation and the need for safer bike conditions, according to the city's website.

"The tours also help emphasize the importance of issues such as increasing physical activity, safety, reducing traffic congestion and concern for the environment," the website reads.

Residents are encouraged to always wear a helmet, obey traffic rules, look and signal prior to turning, and wear bright clothing to increase visibility while biking.
