NuPA Newsletter – May is National Bike Month

Nutrition and Physical Activity Newsletter

Change it up and ride your bike! Metrolink in the Los Angeles County will be kicking off National Bike Month by biking together rather than driving alone! Bicycling to work means fewer cars on the road and less pollution. It can also save you money while providing a fun and safe way for kids and adults to get in much needed physical activity. An often overlooked, but extremely important aspect of Bike Month is bicycle safety. Metrolink offers classes and online biking guides that are FREE, interactive, and take place all across the county.
