May is National Mental Health Awareness Month
May is National Mental Health Awareness Month. It’s a time to raise awareness and help reduce the stigma associated with caring for our mental health.
Magnum Bikes believes that mental health is just as important as physical health. So it’s our goal to promote ways that our community can take care of both. And we hosted an event at our Scottsdale store earlier this year to do just that.
Let’s recap the event and share how you can take charge of your mental health.

Recapping Our Scottsdale Mental Health Awareness Event
Earlier this year, our Scottsdale store hosted an event in partnership with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to raise awareness about mental health in our community.
We welcomed members of the Scottsdale community for a fun-filled day, including:
Free group yoga and guided meditation
Free ice cream, compliments of local favorite Handel’s Ice Cream
A group ride with e-bikes provided by Magnum free of charge
A speech and meet-and-greet with Scottsdale Mayor David Ortega
We were proud to host this special event and provide a space for our community to connect with one another and engage in honest discussions about mental health.
Take Care Of Your Mental Health
If you’re not in crisis right now, you can take preventive steps to care for your mental health on your own.
Going for a ride with a loved one is a great way to prioritize your physical and mental health. Pictured: Magnum Summit (Left) and Magnum Ranger 2.0 (Right)
