It is time to “Get in Gear for Bike Month!”

May is Bike Month 2014That is right, today is the start of “May is Bike Month.”  If you are a current bike commuter or thinking about trying it out now is the perfect time.  Participate by pledging miles at Mayisbikemonth.com. Ride your bike to work, school, shopping, dining or for recreation. Challenge your friends and colleagues to a mileage contest.  Or challenge yourself to ditch your car and ride your bicycle to all your destinations. “Like” May is Bike Month on Facebook (facebook.com/mayisbikemonth) or follow on Twitter (@mayisbikemonth) to find out about events, post photos and receive bike-related updates.  In addition to the health benefits of bicycling, you can also pedal to avoid traffic congestion from construction from projects like Fix50 (www.Fix50.com), beat rising gas prices, help reduce air pollution and enjoy the beautiful May weather.

For any questions or information please see Chris Dougherty at chrisd@cityofwestsacramento.org.
