Celebrate Bike Month in Richmond & the East Bay
Welcome to Bike Month! Spring is the time to not only get riding again, but to encourage people close to you to bike as well. There is no wrong way to celebrate Bike Month in Richmond and greater East Bay. Biking has a ton of benefits, including:
Saving money on gas, parking and transit
Bypassing congested traffic or transit schedules
Reveling in the convenience of the door to door commute and hassle free parking
Getting 40 minutes of exercise (the average commute) directly improves physical and mental health Below is a short guide to start enjoying Bike Month to the fullest. Please visit www.richmondenvironment.org for more info!
