Explore New Haven by bicycle.
On Saturday April 30th, be one of the several hundred cyclists to travel from West Rock to East Rock, and participate in Earth Day celebrations on both sides of the city. Along the way, eat tasty food, hear great music, take on environmental service projects, explore Edgewood and Beaver Ponds Parks, and ride Farmington Canal Trail and official city bike lanes.
Only in its third year, the Rock to Rock Earth Day Ride has quickly grown into one of the region's largest environmental fundraisers. The funds raised will support youth education, community gardens, city tree planting, environmental education, green policy work, local and healthy food projects, park improvements, and much more. This year organizers have already raised over $31,000 to support 14 local environmental organizations.
Rock to Rock is a day-long celebration of Earth Day, and of New Haven's rich environmental and cultural resources. I hope you have the opportunity to take part in it.

Health Matters Tip of the Week:
Take a Nap. Sleep 45 minutes or less to avoid entering into deep sleep, when you may awaken feeling groggy, or sleep about 2 hours to sleep through an entire sleep cycle. Either way, you'll awaken refreshed.
Green Tip of the Week:
Exercise Green! Now that the nice weather is here, get outside for a walk or run instead of heading to the gym! Not only will you save energy but you will be able to enjoy the fresh air!
