Join the City of Rancho Cucamonga in celebrating National Bike Month. For the entire month of May, thousands of people across the country will be cycling, rolling, and walking their way around. Bike Month is a great way to promote bicycling, street safety, and the importance of physical activity.

A 30-minute bike ride can burn anywhere from 200 to 300 calories. Cycling also improves heart health, joint mobility and increases blood flow. Choosing to bike instead of drive reduces air pollution and traffic congestion. Whether you ride for fitness, transportation or fun, you can find an activity perfect for you and maybe even try something new. Here are some ideas on how to participate:

Healthy RC

If you would like to join the City’s efforts to make the community more walkable and bikeable, get involved with Safe Routes to School (SRTS). This program brings together parents, community members, students, teachers, school officials and public safety personnel to identify and address potential safety issues and strategize ways to educate and encourage students to become more physically active and aware of their surroundings.
