May is Bike Month 2014
Get in gear for “May is Bike Month”!  Now is the perfect time to improve your health and reduce pollution in the Sacramento region.  Why ride?  It’s good for your waistline, health, gas bill and the region’s air quality.  As an added bonus – a bike commute in May can help avoid the “Fix-50 Carmageddon.”  Last year, cyclists in the Sacramento region rode 1,747,022 miles.  Log your May is Bike Month miles at http://www.mayisbikemonth.com/ for the chance to win prizes.

Spare the Air 2014
The Sacramento region's 2014 Spare the Air ozone season began on Thursday, May 1. The Sacramento region currently does not meet federal air quality health standards for ground-level ozone.  Hot summer days combined with pollution from cars and trucks creates high levels of ozone that can trigger respiratory irritation and other health ailments.  Do your part to “Spare the Air” by leaving your vehicle in the garage – ride a bike, walk, or take public transit for errands or to work.  Or consider working remotely, carpooling, or delaying errands.  Sign up for a daily email Air Alert and view current air quality conditions in the region at www.SpareTheAir.com.
