City Celebrates National Bike Month with “Cycle-for-Salsa” Tuesday Night

As part of National Bike Month, the Office of Resilience and Sustainability is celebrating Bike-to-Work Week with a Cycle-for-Salsa celebration from 6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, May 17, on Mills Street (from Mesa to Oregon) south of San Jacinto Plaza.

The Office of Resilience and Sustainability encourages residents to ride bicycles to work from May 16 to May 20. Riding a bicycle to work is a great way to save money and get exercise at the same time.

The Cycle-for-Salsa fiesta encourages residents to participate in active lifestyles and healthy living by promoting walkability, active transportation and green spaces. The fiesta will celebrate residents who are participating in Bike-to-Work Week (May 16-20) and/or ride the bus to work.

One block of Mills Street will be transformed into a temporary pop-up park complete with bike racks, outdoor furniture, trees, live music and more.

Festivities include a salsa cook-off with local chefs. The chefs will be provided a mystery box of local ingredients and they will be asked to use the ingredients to make a delicious, unique salsa. There will be many local businesses at the event offering fresh produce, fresh juice and baked goods.

Cycle for Salsa supports the resilience focus area, Healthy City, Healthy People, which encourages healthy behavior shifts and infrastructure supportive of active lifestyles and healthy eating.
