May is Bike Month. This year, it is anticipated that more cyclists than ever will Bike to Wherever! The Tri-Valley Spare the Air Team wants to help everyone share the road safely. Drivers and cyclists can test their knowledge about sharing the road safely by taking a 6-question quiz from Bike East Bay. Answers are provided at the end of the quiz, and are specific to California state law. Tri-Valley residents who complete the quiz and provide an email contact will be entered into a random drawing for one of eight $50 gift cards. You can take the quiz here: www.bit.ly/driversedquiz.
