Get Pedaling: May is Bike Month

e-Connections Post

It’s time to dust off your bikes, pump up your tires and join your neighbors and co-workers in bicycling for work, school, shopping, recreation or training this May during the Sacramento region’s annual May is Bike Month campaign. 

In addition to the health benefits of bicycling, you can also pedal to avoid traffic congestion, save money on gas, help reduce air pollution and enjoy the beautiful May weather.

Participate by pledging miles at Mayisbikemonth.com, ride your bike and then log those miles on the website to earn virtual badges and a chance to win prizes. Schools that have registered will be logging their miles all month. You can see the official standings here

Sac City schools will also be celebrating with Bike to School Days. Here are a few of the events:
