Today we are celebrating the first day of National Bike Month .  We are so lucky to live in such a great community with so many miles of wonderful bike trails.  Traveling from one end of Folsom to the other can be beautiful, peaceful and sometimes even faster (think stop lights) when you hop on your bike and hit the trail.  It is a great way to stay in shape, save money on gas and contribute to cleaner air  Every May there are many events going on in local communities to celebrate Bike Month.  This year bike to work week is the week of May 13th-17th.  Bike to work day is May 17th and bike to school day is May 8th.  On Sunday, May 5th, Folsom and Sacramento County are closing down a portion of Scott Road from 8am to 4 pm to cyclists and walkers to help celebrate bike month.  So, how does that have anything to do with dentistry, you ask?  Well,  our office decided to join in on the fun and involve our patients by having a “Bike to your Dental Appointment” event.   All you have to do is ride your bike to your appointment this month and your name will be put in a drawing that will be held on Friday, May 31st for a $100 gift card to Folsom Bike .

So start pedaling and don’t miss out!  Let’s all enjoy a cleaner, healthier lifestyle and bike to work, school and don’t forget……your dental appointment!  See ya with your helmet on!
