National Ride For Reading Week is an annual nationwide effort in which volunteer cyclists bring our mission to their town by hosting book deliveries to Title 1 Schools in their communities. It’s the biggest week of the year! May is National Bike Month, and we hope to encourage cyclists to use a Ride For Reading delivery as part of their local celebrations. The 2019 dates for National Ride for Reading Week are May 5-11, 2019.
