May is Bike Month 2020 Goes Virtual

May is Bike Month is a regional campaign to encourage cycling, and everyone is encouraged to participate! 

Create your account on MayisBikeMonth.com to log your bike trips, and follow @50Corridor on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram!
May is Bike Month is almost here and this year we will hold a completely virtual campaign that celebrates the positive force that bicycling brings to our lives. Social distancing might keep us from hosting in-person events, but it won't stop us from bringing you inspiration and motivation to get out safely for solo rides. Hopping on a bike is a great way to enjoy the spring weather, get some exercise, and feel mentally refreshed.

Connect with us on social media to join the fun. There will be videos, raffles, challenges, a Zoom bike clinic, and more!

Five Reasons to Ride

  1. Take advantage of low traffic- Streets are the public's domain, and less cars on the road means more room for bicycles and pedestrians. 
  2. Keep the air clean, especially for those with compromised respiratory systems- Switching from driving to biking for short, daily trips could save between 2.4 and 5 billion gallons of gas and keep between 21 and 45 million tons of Co2 out of the atmosphere. 
  3. Boost your immune system- Everyone knows that staying active and strong helps your body fight infections.
  4. Improve your mood- Tired of being stuck inside? Get those endorphins flowing!
  5. Win Prizes! Logging your trips on MayIsBikeMonth.com will put you in the running for random drawings of t-shirts, socks, and gift cards. 

Patrol in the Parks
Folsom Park Patrol

The City of Folsom started a Park Patrol program to help educate people in Folsom parks about social distancing and closure requirements. Patrol staff are circulating through every park several times each day, seven days a week, and are available to answer any questions park go-ers may have and to assist with compliance of the Sacramento County Public Health Orders and the City of Folsom closures.

American River Bike Patrol

Sacramento County supervisors unanimously approved a new American River Bike Patrol group in February and recruiting and training is moving forward, with the new Patrol expected to "go live" in late May or June.

Bike patrollers will act as trail ambassadors, eyes and ears for Park Rangers, offering trail advice, local knowledge, equipment assistance and first aid as required.  Learn More
