Kudos: Hundreds of bikers pump for clean air, lungs 

More than 500 bikers participated in the 17th annual Bike for Breath, raising $160,000 for the clean-air campaign against pollution, smoking and lung disease.

Open to all, the July 12 ride, starting from the Applied Bioystems campus in Foster City, offered participants four different routes ranging from 10 to 62 miles long.

After completing their morning trek, participants returned to a festive expo area, where they enjoyed music, food, chiropractor and massage services, health screenings and an interactive Kids Zone.

"We are thrilled that so many people came out to get some exercise and support our drive to fight lung disease," said Nicole Villanueva, organizer of the event, which was sponsored by Breathe California, a group with a mission to fight lung disease, advocate for clean air and promote public health in local communities.
