Good message, Sue--I'm

Good message, Sue--I'm celebrating Bike Month with you. And I have seen the DOT bicyle helmets--as a matter of fact, I got my own at one of these events--and they are sleek, strong, and spectacular! Also at the Countee Cullen Library on this Saturday, May 16, there will be a <strong>50+ Fitness Fair</strong>, with presentations and literature to spread the good word about free and low-cost activities for adults to boost activities in the Harlem area and throughout NYC. <em>Psssst--they're not checking i.d.s, so if you're under 50, no problem!</em>
