Grab your keys, bike, skateboard, or running shoes because our May guide is all about getting active and getting out and about. Enjoy the scenery, enjoy the trip—make both the journey and the destination the highlight of your day no matter where you go. Here are four ways to get you moving more sustainably this month!
1. Get Your Motor Running
Before hitting the road, make sure to get caffeinated so you can stay awake, alert, and enthusiastic! Choose sustainably sourced coffee and save while you’re at it when you stop in at some of our favorite coffee shops.
2. Fix It, Maintain It, Enjoy It, Bop it
It’s time to bring your bike in for regular spring maintenance before hitting the road once again! Don’t have a bike, yet? We can fix that! Alameda Bicycle has been offering the best bicycle and bicycle accessory selection in the Bay since 1969. Check out their extensive selection of bike gear to get going on two wheels.

4. Bike or Boat to Work
You don’t need to go on a long journey to get the most out of your bicycle—commuting to work can be the most rewarding pedal-powered activity.
