Why does TAMC care about encouraging and supporting active transportation such as traveling by foot (walking, jogging), by bicycle, skateboard, skates, or scooters? So many reasons, including reducing motor vehicle traffic in congested areas, reducing carbon emissions and other environmental pollutants, boosting the economy and public health, and many other great reasons. See benefits of bicycling for a list of 20.

Why tell others about this event?

I appreciate efforts by Transportation Agency for Monterey County (TAMC) to do more outreach to people who bike in South County.

Sometimes sufficient numbers of people haven’t heard about events (e.g., a South County bike road skills and safety class scheduled in a previous year was among those cancelled due to lack of registration).

Monterey County Bike Month posters, in Spanish and English, plus stickers in English are available. Visit http://www.tamcmonterey.org/programs/bike-pedestrian/bike-month/ to grab a poster. For stickers, contact TAMC.
