April 30, 2016 |

To mark the start of "May is Bike Month," the Sacramento Area Council of Governments will hold a special cycling and walking event tomorrow.

The Sixth Annual Annual Great Scott Bike & Walk Event is a family-friendly event that closes down 30 miles of beautiful county roads to cars and creating an expansive “open street” for cyclists and pedestrians of all ages and abilities. The street closure cover a large area, but the day is designed for people to bike and walk as much or as little as they want.

The event is FREE and made possible by Sacramento County, El Dorado County, City of Rancho Cordova, City of Folsom, 50 Corridor Transportation Management Association, and 50 Corridor area chambers of commerce. Residents are invited to enjoy walking, biking, food trucks, live music, giveaways, contests, and more,

“Sacramento County's Great Scott Walk and Bike Event is the perfect way to kick off May is Bike Month for the Sacramento region. The county has a long history of planning for communities that have many transportation options," Sacramento County Supervisor and Sacramento Area Council of Governments Vice-Chair Phil Serna said. "I'd like to challenge my colleagues and the residents of Sacramento County to trade their car in for at least one bike trip in May.”
